Christiane and Sandra write a book about the “world of magic”. At an esoteric summer workshop, they meet three other women and decide to work together on the project, with each woman delving into a special area: shamanism, witchcraft, ritual magic, sexual magic, and geomancy. They all try to influence their live through magical rituals. “I want to know what keeps the world together,” Christiane the shaman says. Taking psychoactive plants she tries to find the answer in other dimensions or in conversations with her best friend, the mini-pig Hildeswin. Sandra, the witch, is searching for the man of her life, but her Tarot cards always say “no” to the men she meets. A crazy comedy about five young women searching for the meaning of their life. A satire which spares no aspect of the “magical sciences”. But the world of magic has its own set of laws...
