Program: Wettbewerb Spielfilm: Das Tier im Dschungel

“We have to dance, nobody can take that away from us.” In a nightclub in the big city, a mysterious secret has bound the two protagonists May and John for more than twenty years. While they wait for it to occur, music, fashion, and current affairs are in a constant state of flux. A pulsating ode to club culture and a plea for the liberating power of losing oneself in the intoxication of dance, life, and love.
