    • Synopsis
    • After a relationship conflict, a streetcar is hitting Anna whereupon she falls into a coma. When she wakes up she has lost her memory. She can’t walk anymore and speaks only in disjointed sentences. Marco tries to do everything that Anna once again get back on their memories and thus to their love. He is feeling guilty because of the intense conflict just before the accident, as they wanted to separate. Marco now takes on a fight that is directed not only against the disease, but also against him. He believes that he is able to cure Anna with his willpower and his love. Subconsciously he hopes to revive the before difficult relationship with new love again. As Anna is feeling better, Marco finds himself confronted with the reality: Anna would not have done the same for him. Marco realizes that the love between them is over and that he can no longer hide from his life and wishes.
      A very personal love story, which is not told from the perspective of the victim, but from the perspective of the partner concerned.
