Nominated for a Golden Bear and Best Feature at Berlinale, this sharp psychological thriller tackles a woman’s fear of failure in a cruel corporate environment. Not yet 30, Lola controls her personal life with the same ruthless efficiency she uses at work as a business consultant. Her routine is one of late nights in the office, fancy client dinners, casual sex with her female boss and brief nights in sterile hotel rooms. But this absolute order in her life, bordering with psychotic tidiness, is a cover for an untidy secret: Lola’s older sister Conny (Pia Herzegger) is a paranoid schizophrenic who was hospitalized after attempted suicide. When a tragic event forces Conny back into Lola’s life, her secrets begin to unravel and Lola’s grip on reality slips away.
