Brief synopsis

Sasha, 23. She's been out roaming berlin streets day and night. All she wants is to forget: her past, her ex, life and herself. She drinks without rest. She'd like to drop dead. This is when she meets Alex, 60. He drinks to forget as well. Both connect their philosophy of life and their refusal to participate in the world's circus. But Sasha leads another fight: against people's perceptions of and their projections onto her. What starts as a fast-paced game ends in a trip of self-hatred and despair.
