Synopsis:
Somewhere in Berlin. Not just some day – today.

A parcel in a hallway.

ALEX, a husband and father of three, leaves his flat to get wine from his car. In the confusion that follows, he's torn from the routine of everyday life and fails to ever find his footing again.

MAXI, his daughter and a strong young woman, sets out into what might pass as life. It’s a brutal weaning process though, and she ends up angry and demanding answers.

KARL set off long ago. He is beguiling, smart as a whip and has the answers Maxi craves. He entices her in, recognising her rage and provides the requisite outlet. Part of a growing radical movement, he dances with her on a razor's edge.

Today in Berlin. Tomorrow in Prague. Soon in Strasbourg and all across Europe.

This is a power grab.
