Working at the supermarket, cooking for her husband and son, and doing the chores: that’s the ordinary everyday life of middle-aged Gabi Kovanda. One day when Gabi comes home from work something happens that interrupts her daily grind in a single moment. There’s suddenly something new in her life that is not visible and exists only in her head, something she interprets as God. Becoming increasingly distant, Gabi forgoes her ordinary life, wandering the Austrian countryside in search of answers from the voices consuming her.

Karl Markovics sits for the second time in the director’s chair after gaining prominence first as an actor, famed particularly for his roles in The Counterfeiters (2007) and The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014).
