After witnessing the brutal death of her mother, 12-year old Simone feels disconnected to the real world. In her mid-20s, Simone is a lonely multimedia artist trying to keep her panic attacks under control and hang on to her day job in an underground car park. And Simone, a 60-year old physicist, organizes a conference on the nature of time. These three lives are woven together in a fascinating narrative structure, in which time axes overlap, characters multiply and plotlines recur. Endorphine is an intoxicating cinematic jigsaw.
