Early evening – a big city. A teenage couple shyly flirt with each other, a housewife sits down to watch a daily soap, nurses in a hospital gossip before the nightshift starts, a trendy couple drives through rush hour, so excited they can hardly wait to get home – a man (Michael Neuenschwander) with a rifle enters a building seeking revenge.
In the blink of an eye seemingly unrelated events turn upside down what were once secure, happy, ‘normal’ lives. Behind fear, beyond the unexpected, there is love and hope.
