The 17-year old Max Rinneberg lost his memory after he fell down the stairs. When he woke up in hospital, he didn´t recognize his parents and friends anymore. He even didn´t get anything out of his former hobbies like running marathon or playing soccer. Although he can still speak and write and knows everyday objects, he has lost his episodic memory, the archive of the personal history.
The now 26-year old had to reconquer everything forgotten tediously and reinvent himself, which is not possible without an existential crisis. How do you live without your past? Are you still the same? Is it just a loss or also a new freedom?
A moving life story which gives rise to questions about your own identity in an unusual way.
