Scene from ROOM 67 (photo © Matthias Maasz/JUMA Filmproduktion)

The young and hearing-impaired Anna and the spirited and clumsy Max meet in a hotel lobby. She was stood up by a blind date, he is traveling to a non-smoker’s convention and ended up in the wrong hotel by mistake. Both like each other instantly – but how does one flirt, when the beloved does not hear anything? Without being intimidated, they start getting to know each other and discover inventive ways of communication. Eventually, they end up in a hotel room, raid the minibar, laugh together, kiss, make love …

Then there is a knock on the door and Max is arrested.
