Walls

A Film by Maik Schuster, Fatmir Dolci, Max Paschke

Synopsis

A short film dealing with the energy generated through human confrontations with walls.
The urge for freedom and fulfilment is just as human as the urge to build walls for everyday order. Three individuals in different countries are struggling under this tension – and finally decide to go all in.
