Germany in the year 2029: a tense thriller portrays a distopia in which AI has taken over our lives. Star journalist Johann Hellström (Tobias Moretti) is banned from writing after a source turns out to be a fake informer. Hellström suspects sabotage by the increasingly authoritarian government. Together with his wife Lucia (Valery Tscheplanowa) he withdraws to their fully digitized weekend retreat. While political conditions in the country continue to destabilize, the smart home takes on a life of its own. When two dissidents seek refuge there, the situation gets out of hand.
RICK OSTERMANN (*1978) presented his first full-length film Wolfschildren in 2012. In 2018 he was awarded the main prize at the TV & Film Festival Baden-Baden for Fremder Feind.
