Synopsis

A first film that strongly criticises harassment

Ela, a young actress, gets a role by the well-known theatre director Franz Kramer. The production is a great opportunity for Ela, but also brings pressure. Kramer constantly crosses Ela’s boundaries and the situation comes to a head when Kramer sexually harasses her. Ela struggles to emerge as a self-confident character – and realises that to do so she has to take the same steps of self-empowerment in her real life.

In collaboration with CID – Fraen & Gender
