Karsten apparently has it made. After a party in his apartment in a provincial German town, everybody leaves except Anna. Admiringly, Karsten approaches this mysterious woman. How could he have known that in this moment of weakness, his well-established life would spiral out of control and turn into a disaster? For the woman dies that night, and not only does he have to face the fallout with his girlfriend, who’d been away on a business trip, but tensions in the family and in his circle of friends follow. His attempt to live life as if nothing has happened fails. Disappointment breeds rage and injustice, calamity takes its course and, just as Karsten thinks he has his life under control again, he has become a different person.
