Phillip Hochmair is a young, successful actor with engagements at big theatres in Vienna and Hamburg. His life is marked by learning new texts by heart, rehearsals, and performances, thus gradually losing contact with the reality of everyday life. Only when he meets wandering Walter, with whom he establishes an ambiguous friendship, and also faces his neighbor Victor’s destiny, He discovers with full force how cruel the daily battle for survival can be .

“It was clear from the beginning that we would focus on two different worlds. What caught our attention in Philipp was that he was out of touch with reality, forced into that state as a very busy actor. You live in intellectual texts, you are always someone else, and you are admired for something which is not you – i.e. the person on stage and not the one behind the scenes. For us the appeal was to confront him with someone living one hundred percent in reality.” (Tizza Covi)
