debut feature, 79 min, 2023
Moritz (22) follows his boyfriend Jonas to Berlin only to be abandoned by him within a few weeks. For some time he finds security with the older Noah, but then moves on. He changes his looks and dives into the city’s vibrating techno world. He learns to express his repressed desires, but he also starts to lose himself in drugs and emotional alienation. With the help of his queer friends, Moritz develops his own ideas of sexuality and masculinity, leading him a little closer to himself.
