WORST CASE SCENARIO

WORST CASE SCENARIO

It could always be worse? Not for costume designer Olga and director Georg. They’ve only just split up, and now the two of them are stuck together on a camping site in Poland, making a doomed comedy about the UEFA Cup. The shoot degenerates into a chaotic farce: Actors and plot change as frequently as a footballers strip, and every day another crew member abandons the sinking ship. The fact that Olga is pregnant becomes almost irrelevant. While Georg hysterically attempts to fulfill his inner artistic destiny and complete a film against all odds, Olga vigorously seeks her fortune in the Poland beyond the camping site. Both endeavors are hopeless. In the end, Georg and Olga are forced to confront the conclusion that a worst-case scenario is still better than no scenario at all.
