Directed by Simon Jaquemet

  • Switzerland, Germany 2018; 114 min

Ruth works in a laboratory where animals are used for radical medical experiments. While she gets to play God at work, she subjects herself to the religious demands of a radical sect at home: evangelical Christians who believe in the existence of demons. Her life starts to derail when Andreas, her ex-boyfriend who was convicted of murder, suddenly reappears. Is it really him, or a ghost? What's happening to her teenage daughter, and what will happen to the monkey undergoing a full body transplant?
