The Multitude is Feverish

Someone misses a flight, on purpose or not. A story of gender identity, eternity and the world we live in.

The diary-based film reveals itself as a poetically sharp portrait of a gender-blurring person who purposely misses her connecting flight “for no particular reason”. Fluidly shifting between various perspectives, styles and time stages, the borders between subjectivity and objectivity become as obsolete as those between inner and outer world. As she is wandering through the city we dive into the multilayered facets of a personality and get hints of the contradictions, struggles and desires that can lie within a person.
