Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 04/2018

Alexander never believed in true love till he met Paula, a performer. He sees her on stage and is lost in her world of illusions, falling head over heels for her. But her sudden death tears him apart. When he meets her estranged sister Marlene at the cemetery, a misunderstanding sees him welcomed into the grieving family – as Paula’s boyfriend. It’s a mistake Alexander fails to clear up, he is too curious to learn more about the woman he never got to know. However, Marlene remains skeptical: The version of Paula Alexander is talking about is not consistent with the image she has. At the same time, she is attracted to this strange man who claims to have known her enigmatic sister so well. Through their shared grief, the two slowly grow closer.
