DOK Leipzig 28 October – 3 November 2019
62nd International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film
DOK Leipzig Film Festival



Ever since a young woman discovered that her boyfriend cheated on her, she has come across his lovers everywhere, finding clues like hair and photos online – and collecting them. A regular map of femininity emerges, which she studies like the discoverer of a new world. Curiosity intermingles with grief and shock. The painful betrayal makes her take new paths, too, where she meets not only herself but perhaps all women.
