STORY DESCRIPTION:

Berlin March-April 2004. The Pope John Paul II is dying. Katja, an almost 30 years old berlinese actress, is about to premiere Tchehovs 'Seegull'. She's torn between the reality of the play and the difficult relations to the various people around her. Katja has just broke up her relationship with Lars - her old love from the theater school yet and she's involved into an affair with the director of the play, she's acting in. Katja, born from a polish mother and a German father, is also in conflict with her religious parents, whos perception of the reality is different to her own. Finally Katja meets one French dreamer who shows her the other point of view for the life. The death of the Pope will give Katja a symbolic impulse. She will have to make the choice, trying to find out what's her profession based on. Is it only her work or maybe her true vocation. If it's that last, how much is Katja ready to sacrifice?
