We Will Stay In Touch About It

A Film by Jan Zabeil

Synopsis

A man drives through a deserted landscape. Suddenly his car hits a person, seriously hurting or even killing him. The driver searches for the body, cannot find it – and must accept that there is no one. Instead, he does find blood on the broken windshield.
What happens when realizing that we kill – without being confronted with the dead?
