Early evening – a big city. Two teenagers shyly flirt with each other, a housewife sits down to watch her daily soap, nurses in a hospital gossip before the nightshift starts, a trendy couple drives through rush hour, so excited they can hardly wait to get home – a man with a rifle enters a building seeking revenge. In the blink of an eye seemingly unrelated events turn upside down what were once secure, happy, “normal” lives. Behind fear, beyond the unexpected, there is love and hope.
Born in the Canton of Bern in 1969, Cihan Inan began his work in the Swiss film and theatre scene immediately after completing his studies in Philosophy, German and Theatre Studies.
