Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 02/2018

Julie is in her mid-twenties. She is smart and quick-witted. She marches to the beat of her own drum and has her own manifesto: to do nothing. And with nothing, she really means NOTHING: no work, no studies, no friends.

Agnes is a happy go lucky nurse of the same age. With a husband and a child, she is fitting into society's expectations without giving any great thought to the matter. Until, that is, she meets Julie. Together they start a rebellion that will bring them to the limits of their respective worlds.

STAY STILL is a bitter-comic ode to life: full of witty dialogue and situational humor, dangerous, and sexy.
