fiction feature, GER 2021, in production
In a world that is divided into protagonists and minor characters, people with film defects are persecuted and segregated. The 16-year-old Paula has worked her way up from the simple secondary character and is about to take the decisive test for the protagonist, but she just doesn’t manage to make rousing music. In search of a solution, she finds herself in the world of outlawed outtakes, with which she has more in common than she would initially like.
