Leipzig, GDR, the 1980s. Hotel Astoria is a magical, almost sacred place. Business people, prostitutes, the elite of the Socialist Party, and from time to time ordinary people meet here. But lobster, salmon and caviar are not always on the menu – poor economy does not stop at a government hotel. And the Stasi? They have an eye on everything.
The many truths from the everyday socialist life of a luxury hotel.

The character of a tennis video game is drifting out of his own game into an out-of-bounds world. Searching for his lost tennis racket, he finds himself on a trip trough a surreal video game world.
The short film discovers the arbitrariness of boundaries and rules and deals with the complexity and ambiguity of the modern world. It’s about the challenge to find one’s own identity and to leave one’s own inner boundaries behind.
