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

While on a birthday trip to Krakow with his best friend, nineteen-year-old Samiel lands in a hotel bed with a girl. It’s his first time—and he discovers a particular sexual preference that he wants to pursue. A film about the possibilities of intimacy—and a plea for innocence in dealing with sex.
