Mike has locked himself in for weeks. He is not sick; he has consciously decided not to take part in the life outside anymore. And his parents or sister cannot do anything about it. They can only stand in front of the locked door and prompt, plead, ask, lose it, despair, accuse, ignore and hope. In the process, the door turns into a mirror of their own stories.
Inspired by the Japanese phenomenon hikikomori, where teenagers withdraw from social life, this debut feature of award-winning German director Isa Prahl won the Best First Feature award at Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.
