Mind Your Body

A Film by Silke C. Engler

Synopsis

„The dream is the best proof of the fact that we are not enclosed so firmly in our skins as it seems.“ Christian Friedrich Hebbel

Jo is working as a trainer at the Fitness Company MIND YOUR BODY. His conciousness is slipping into the body of a customer and he is doing their sportsprogram for them. During this session Jo is not allowed to make any contact to the customer’s environment. Otherwise the exchange of conciousness could be disturbed. Dreams can originate and they are strictly forbidden in this future world. One day when Jo traines the famous Eddie he meets Ery and suddenly for him everything changes.
