Brief synopsis

Germany, 19th century, in the Middle Rhine Valley. The dreamy Idilia wakes up in the middle of a gloomy castle ruin and cannot remember anything that happened before. When she realizes with horror that there is no escape from the meter-high castle walls, a tough fight for survival begins for her. Only her nebulous diary can help her to decipher the past and reveals a secret romance with the Abyssinian human-zoo-actor Caven. However, her written diary entries increasingly blur reality and fiction.

The film is dedicated to the legend of Idilia Dubb and combines historical love drama with thriller elements.
