DON'T LOOK AT ME THAT WAY

Hedi is the new neighbor of Iva, who raises her daughter Sophia by herself. The two women start a relationship and Iva is desperately in love with Hedi. Suddenly Iva’s father appears. Hedi feels strongly attracted to him. It seems that only one world exists for Hedi. Her own.

DON'T LOOK AT ME THAT WAY pushes you into a world where you start to doubt your own being. What does it mean to love? Isn’t it always connected with sacrificing and oppressing? Then you try to find your own identity in a world which points to where you actually don't belong. Iva and Hedi make love, they make hate, watch them how they act in this regime.
