VIENNALE closing film

Yella has decided to leave her small town in eastern Germany for a promising job and a new life on the other side of the river Elbe. In Hannover, Yella meets Philipp, a young executive at an equity firm, who gives her a job as his assistant. Yella sees a potential future with Philipp. He is serious, determined, and his goals could become shared projects. It seems, ambitious Yella could finally get everything she has ever wanted. But strange voices and sounds are plaguing Yella - truths from her past coming back to haunt her. She begins to worry that her new life could be too good to be true. She is determined to keep her eyes open - because those who sleep could well experience a rude awakening.
