Ruth is a middle-aged woman who twenty years ago experienced her lover Andi being sent to jail, accused of murder. Now she lives a quiet life with two daughters and a gentle husband. She has an interesting job and shares the husband’s religious Christian dedication. But suddenly she meets Andi – or not! We don’t know what’s real and what’s Ruths inner experience. This becomes the start of a chain of events that drives the film in directions no-one can predict. Everything is turned upside down. Is it as Ruths husband thinks a test of demons – or a trial of her religious commitment? Or something else? The Swiss director Simon Jaquemet has accomplished a mystery thriller of high class.
