Eight years ago, Hanna and Mads suffered a tragedy that continues to have a profound impact on their lives. Having reached a crucial turning point in their relationship, they must decide if they have a future together or if it's time to go their separate ways. Shot without a script over the course of 11 days, the film acts as both an experiment and testament to the power of improvisational drama in creating a story as real as life itself.

This film is in the Narrative Feature Competition.
