Director's statement
"I tell the story of a girl who tries to understand what is happening to her when there is nothing to understand. After a break-up there is denial, hope, jealousy, anger… and mostly loss of control. Lila does inexplicable things. Because distress can lead to madness. Any advice she gets from the people close to her is useless. She doesn’t listen. The heart remains sealed off. There’s no cure. Everything depends on Lila. She would like to get help, but it wouldn’t do any good. She can only rely on herself and her own will to get through it".
