Directed by:

When desorientation results in aggression the latter searches for a direction. Multifacetedly and sensitively director Christine Repond characterises a process of radicalisation. Three youngsters from rural Switzerland, in a time of orientation, meet a group of neo-Nazis who party in secrecy. Attracted by provocative symbols and a marked structure each of them faces a decision. In smooth shots boredom and resulting developments find their adequate cinematic form.
