SHORT FILM, Austria, 2015, approx 40min
director: Nikolaus Müller
German title: Der Damm
status: pre-production/shooting

On a hike the long-term pair Catherine and Chris encounter a small, abandoned girl. The excursion becomes a sample for their relationship.

Catherine and Chris are a couple for years. To escape the city and the routines of everyday life, they make a trip to a dam surrounded by the landscape of the Alps. Soon tensions between the two are noticeable. But all discrepancies are forgotten when the two meet during the hike on an abandoned, 7-year old girl. When asked where her parents are, she does not answer. The events of the next few hours will show Catherine her true feelings about Chris.
