Fragil

A Film by Rebecca Panian

Synopsis

FRAGILE

Instead of letting herself time to coming to terms with her lost relationship, NATALIE (35) has a first date with SASCHA (40), a guy from a dating website, that triggers exactly what she wanted to suppress: her lovesickness – all the pain and anger. It needs one night and some more or less self-destructive encounters until she finds peace again.
