In uns das Universum

A Film by Lisa Krane

Synopsis

THE UNIVERSE IN US

A strange biological malformation is detected inside the body of young dancer Li – a second, fully developed heart has grown in her chest. Doctors are mystified. Their search for possible causes remains inconclusive. While specialists encroach upon her body trying to examine the smallest molecule, Li refuses to see her condition as a “defect”.
