A Film by Simone Catharina Gaul

Synopsis

More success. More Money. More power. More partying. More, and more, and more. Until finally we are out of breath, and then someone misses the turn.
Chris searches for a kick through motocross races on ice. Rea and Bea party to excess all night long. Melitta never stops running. All trying to get out of their daily hamster wheel lives, looking for emotional content in a harsh, technical world built of concrete, steel and plastic where personal achievement and success are all important. All of them are running away, but always in circles.
An experimental visualization of our daily life acceleration.
