A young musician who is afraid to die, Juri is being followed by a black raven which causes the young hypochondriac’s heart to race. The bird drives him into the clutches of a mysterious man who speaks with an eastern European accent and claims to be Death himself. For Juri, a nocturnal odyssey begins which takes him through labyrinths of go-kart tracks, opium dens and chandeliers. He meets the fascinating Nina, who works in a peep show and becomes a passenger on Juri’s hellishly somnambulistic trip.

“The fear of dying has always been very present in my life and I wanted to make an honest film, something very personal. Also, growing up somehow takes the magic away and everything becomes a routine and becomes less fascinating. So, I wanted to explore again that feeling of finding the magic again, and that place for me is at night, when things are more unpredictable and in essence, mysterious.” (Xaver Böhm)
