A declaration of love to the lesser known magicians of cinema, as unique as it is bizarre, and a playful hymn to being different. When Zara suffers a nervous breakdown, her introverted sister has to take over her job as a foley artist. The job: Eva has to create sound effects for a commercial for the new pharma product Equili. When a horse’s tail starts growing out of her body, her confidence grows too – and she starts an affair with a botanist which becomes a sensual game of submission. (Filmfest Hamburg)
