In this moving feature debut by director Mariko Minoguchi, a new romance is upended by a tragic twist of fate when lovers Nora (Saskia Rosendahl) and Aron (Julius Feldmeier) find themselves in the middle of an armed bank robbery. After the life-changing event, Nora meets Natan (Edin Hasanovic), who evokes in her an odd, yet appealing sense of déjà vu. As their paths continue to cross and the relationship deepens, Nora navigates a spiraling echo chamber of memories as her past grief continually resurfaces. Told through a unique narrative structure of flashbacks and flash-forwards, RELATIVITY is both a heartbreaking melodrama and a thoughtful study on the nature of time
