You Are Everything

A Film by Lena Geller

Synopsis

Journalist Georg and his girlfriend Vera meet DJ and bon vivant Dave Zuma at an open-air festival. When the three board the hippie bus, the trip of their lifetime begins, through the Balkans heading south.
Side-by-side, under the sun of the ancient continent a passionate amour fou unfolds between the three and shows them what it means to be alive.
