Two lost souls in London. Connected through a poem in German and the question of how they will meet.

A cinematic poem in episodic verses; two complementary spheres of perception, created through the efforts of two different, independently working cinematographers and editors, each with their own visual language. As a co-production of the Vienna Film Academy and the German Film Academy Baden-Württemberg, shot in London with a crew from a total of five different countries, this film about loneliness has an anything but lonely genesis.
