Blank

A Film by Sarah Blaßkiewitz

Synopsis

BLANK is a story about running away. The two women Mila and Charly use this way of escapism to avoid facing their respective crises. Hoping to find new ways of coping with their inner dead ends, they decide to take a trip to the sea but not take into account that they are taking themselves with them. Director Sarah Blaßkiewitz shot a movie solely with her two actresses Anne Haug and Alessija Lause and tells us a story about falling, getting up again, and how some of it can be done neither as three nor as two, but only on your own.
