About the film

Director:  Peter Sehr

Writers:  Peter Sehr and Marie Noelle

Producer:  Wolfram Tichy

Claire, a brilliant student, seeks answers to the meaning of life in the calm of her biology laboratory.  One day, she meets a mysterious young man, Jack, at the cinema, and is intrigued by his style, assurance and audacity.  Apart from his artistic activities, Jack has a regular scam going...  ripping off foreign businessmen with his loyal mate, Charlie, and two actresses.  However, his tough guy exterior conceals a secret passion for old books and he dreams of writing a novel one day.  Jack falls hard for Claire's purity and curiosity.  An unusual romance develops between them.  Jack becomes fearful of their growing intimacy and rejects Claire, withdrawing into his shell.  Abandoned and confused, Claire gradually begins to neglect her studies and embarks on a spiralling course of self-destruction, while Jack, who tries to ignore her, concentrates on his criminal activities.  Meanwhile, a sharp detective named Linda Fox is following his dodgy tracks.
