Silvi

A Film by Nico Sommer

Synopsis

“I know every wrinkle of your body. This is a nightmare”. With her husband leaving, Silvi finally realizes that her rather dull marriage has failed. The 47-year-old woman, now lost and lonely, but also driven by the desire to not be alone, she decides to start over again! Anonymous sex, endearment in the dark and lunatic lovers push her into emotional chaos of affection, pleasure and borderline experiences. She figures that finding the right partner becomes quite a challenge.
