Roger Willemsen wrote the screenplay from his first novel “Kleine Lichter” (“Small Lights”). He tells us about the thin line between life and death: For six months Valerie’s (Franka Potente) lover has been in a coma. In order to pull him back into life she starts shooting videos. Torn between Berlin, where her love is, and Tokyo, where her work is, the film follows the stages of her love. Up to the point, when the feelings almost have been overcome… This film is the last part of a trilogy that producer Hubertus Meyer-Burckhardt started in 2002 with Mein letzter Film.
