    • Synopsis
    • Five years ago 14-year old Lisa disappeared from the lives of her parents Lukas and Grace. No clear reason, no goodbye, she disappeared and hope is small that she will ever come back. Five years is a long time and Lukas and Grace seem to have managed to live a normal life again where everything looks a bit boring and with no space for meaningful talks. The disappearance of their daughter has hurt them deeply but makes them also realize they never really knew her. The lack of meaningful talks ensures they don’t have to relive the pain and missing of the past and the present. But then, by some strange coincidences, Lisa seems to reappear in their lives. Lukas and Grace are confronted each in their own way with their daughter. Both parents are emotionally so alienated from each other that neither of them dares or wants to talk about it. Grace doesn’t tell Lukas about the girl she sometimes sees in the subway, and Lukas doesn’t say a word about the strange telephone calls he gets. They didn’t talk about Lisa for five years and now it seems even more impossible. But whether they want it or not, Lisa has crawled back in their heads and in their lives.
