WHATEVER HAPPENS begins where other love stories end – with a couple's last night together. Their break-up is decided – until dawn Hannah and Julian have to leave and clear out their apartment. This turning point of their lives condenses past decisions, fulfilled and unfulfilled expectations, kept and broken promises. And both of them understand: The most important decisions in life have to be taken again and again – and the end sometimes represents a new beginning.

Dutch Shooting Star Sylvia Hoeks (RENEGADES, BLADE RUNNER 2049) and Fahri Yardim (NICK: OFF DUTY, THE PHYSICIAN) show outstanding on-screen chemistry and deliver nuanced performances in this authentic and emotionally inspiring depiction of falling in love. Niels Laupert (SEVEN DAYS SUNDAY) directs this couple’s very last night as a rollercoaster ride through all stages of modern relationship.
