The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Anton turns shy when he first meets Thea’s roommate Paula in the little kitchen of the apartment the women share as he realizes that she already knows that Thea and he have had sex. Director Marie Luise Lehner shows a time of transition and constant change: of studies, sexual partners, and gender. Desire and affection are openly negotiated—and the women have the say.
