Synopsis

Paula and Hektor, a couple in the second half of their twenties, are moving into their new flat because they are expecting a child. In the house of her childhood, Paula tries to convince her father to finally let go of her, meanwhile Hektor sneaks away. Back in the city he tracks down an old love affair. He wants to understand: how do you leave without looking back?

Statement

Commiting to another person is a pretty dangerous thing to do nowadays. Although people are in need for love like they always were, they find themselves in ever more fleeting and fragile relationships. Nobody can be sure of his counterpart anymore, break-up is a daily experience, staying together for very long became an exception. My impression is that especially a growing number of young people are afraid of too much commitment these days because they experience it as a threat to their personal freedom. As if too much devotion is a prison.

In my movie I show a young couple that is going to make the biggest commitment of them all: they get a child. But one of them, Hektor, is unable to say yes to the other’s love and the new scenario in front of him. Even though there is nobody else in this world waiting for him, he pushes away. He doesn’t even know where he’s heading. Instead he is sunken into an alienating distance to all people around him, just as all figures presented in the movie. At the end it is Paula who defends the idea of a human being that dares to love and and suffer wholeheartedly.
