Und Jetzt

A Film by Michel Linzer

Synopsis

AND NOW
Having crossed an academic finish line and accomplishing what he had hoped to accomplish, this chapter of Mart’s life is nearing its end. Upon successful completion of his final exam, celebrations soon ensue. Joining a group of close friends and classmates at a nearby music club, Mart questions whether or not sharing his feelings of confusion and despair will ruin the party’s lively atmosphere. Grappling with the fear of not knowing what comes next, Mart quickly learns that he is not alone. In Mel, a fellow sufferer who is also visiting the same establishment with her friends, he finds a connection through their common concerns. Cloaked in the solace this connection brings, the two of them flee into a night of conversation, music and hidden talents—united in having no plans for the future.
