Vor Dir

A Film by Janin Halisch

Synopsis

Jaschek is driving. Nada is sitting next to him. No one talks till he puts in a cassette. Nada’s voice comes on. She talks about the night they met. Her voice takes us on a journey remembering what they saw in each other. Through Jaschek’s eyes we will become part of their inaccessible story.

Vor Dir is a sensitive view on the fragile relationship between two young people. Still unsure about their feelings – blurry passions, remembrances and desires set the mood of the protagonists’ world.
