UK Premiere

Alex Schaad’s spiky, good-looking debut feature is a body-swap film with a difference.

Leyla (Mala Emde) and Tristan (Jonas Dassler) board a ferry to a remote island. An evening gathering of the residents includes a raffle in which each number selected is held by a couple. Numbers are matched, couples are introduced and for two weeks they are given the gift of experiencing the world in each other’s bodies. What ensues is a witty, provocative exploration of identity, gender fluidity, sexuality and the pursuit of happiness.

Highly original and hugely entertaining.
