People want crime, tragedy and murder, and that’s exactly what they are going to get. Peter Kern presents the first truly interactive film, loosely based on press reports about the crimes committed by the nurses at the Lainz Hospital in Vienna. By pushing a button the audience can decide, on screen, who lives and who dies. The boundaries of the screen are broken, and we are surprised to discover an unexpected murderer: ourselves.
