Ten days in the life of thirty-something Malte. Desperately wanting to be a poet, he tries and fails to connect with the people around him. His relationship with his mother alternates between anger and regret while he struggles to take up a rapport with single mom Greta and her small daughter. Instead, he feels drawn to mysterious Reiner who fuels his sense of rage towards a society that seemingly refuses to see his true potential. Blending fiction, news clips and animation, MIDDLE OF BEYOND depicts the daily numbness of a world flooded by information and social media where the borders between reality and illusion are crumbling and narcissism and self-promotion overshadow moral values.
