Fortune Faded

A Film by Alexander Heringer

Synopsis

Every Moment leads to another one. Thus, to understand one Moment one has to know about his background, because everything has a cause and everything has an effect. Fortune Faded describes this principle with a journey through this moments and tells a story of a fateful concatenation, that finally ends up in fire and ashes.
