, MVFF 2009), this visually stunning and emotionally resonant exploration of the human condition delves deep into questions of life and death, love and loss, and what it means to exist in this mind-blowing world. Inspired by real lives, filmmaker V.W. Scheich weaves 13 captivating stories into one unforgettable tapestry that—
through a combination of exceptional editing, evocative music, and authentic performances—
moves seamlessly through the roller-coaster rhythms of several parallel lives. Scheich creates a musical energy by expertly shifting focus and combining the realities of diverse, intriguing characters who face homelessness, despair, heartbreak, and addiction. Through the turmoil, the bonds of love persist: Strangers become intimate, families negotiate turbulent relationships and everyone searches for connection.

underscores the unexpected personal intersections that fuel the magic, mystery, and meaning of life.
