Synopsis

For Nora (Saskia Rosendahl) and Aron (Julius Feldmeier) it’s love at first sight when they meet in the subway one rainy day. Their meeting was pure coincidence, Nora says. Everything is fated, says Aron. But then, all of a sudden, Aron is torn from life, he dies in Nora’s arms. For Nora time stands still. She tries to numb her pain, soon spends the night with Natan (Edin Hasanovic), who as if by chance crosses her path time and again. He offers Nora support and stability. She has the strange feeling she knows him already, without suspecting what actually connects them…
