Vera lives in the shadow of her famous father. Tired of her superficial life and relationships, she drifts through Roman high society. When she injures a child in a traffic accident in the suburbs, she forms an intense relationship with an eight-year-old boy and his father. But soon she must realize that also in this world she is only an instrument for others.
Since 1996 Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel are working together in photography, theatre, and movie projects. In 2002 they founded their own film production company Vento Film to produce their films independently. They won several awards for their documentaries, including the Wolfgang Staudte Award at the Berlinale for Babooska. In 2007 they were honored with the “Österreichischen Förderungspreis für Filmkunst” and in 2013 with the “Österreichischen Kunstpreis für Filmkunst”.
