The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Irene lives with her daughter Lena on Ibiza, separated from her husband, the famous musician Paul. Court proceedings are forthcoming against Paul for repeated domestic violence. To protect his career and reputation, he subtly and insistently tries to pressure Irene back into a state of dependence. Between precise study and abysmal thriller, Der Taucher outlines what happens when patterns of violence are handed down.
