Karl’s father is an architect, while his mother is a former singer who spends all her time on the computer with role-playing games. They are liberals, so the sky’s the limit for their kids.
Karl runs a blog on the Internet, where he collects and compiles photographs and videos. Is identity just an illusion? Many followers reading his blog ask themselves this very question.
When Karl falls in love with Doro, he thinks he finally knows what he wants. But after she loses interest, Karl realises that one thing is now clear: nothing is true, everything is random. Disillusioned, he starts playing a dangerous game, where his followers take increasingly more control of his life, making decisions for him, and eventually ruling over matters of life and death.

There will be a talk with director Julia Langhof after the screening

This film is presented in partnership with the Singapore Writers Festival, as part of the SWF Country Focus: Germany
