”Sometimes I imagine that there is another version of myself on each star. I mean, a different version depending on the choices I make Do you understand?“
Every night Anna works in Mr. Pawlowski’s small, run-down gas station. It seems impossible for her to fight her way from the fringes of society into its midst.
But one night she meets the barefoot girl, Flower and the mysterious boy, Lias and her world is turned upside down.
They take Anna to Inselgrün, a hidden garden on the outskirts of the suburb, where a better world seems to exist. A world in which there is no „what-if“, but everyone lives in the moment. But Anna’s happiness does not last long. Strange incidents occur on Inselgrün whose inhabitants are not quite as detached from their past as they pretend to be. When Anna sees a strange, almost bald man, Kairos, she gets deeper and deeper into the spider’s web of her own past, until there is no escape and she has to face her old demons. At least if she wants to learn to seize her own chances.

How many opportunities have we missed? How many decisions have we made in our lives? How
often have we turned one way but not the other? How many times have we refused the call of
adventure in order to maintain the pattern of our daily lives?
Countless times. And how many times have we wondered what if we had acted differently?
KAIROS is a mind game of our protagonist. It is one of those „what-if“ reflections that we all know
and at the end we’re back at the initial situation: the stagnation in life. We miss our chances.
Why? Because of fear? Because of convenience? Because of ignorance? Everyone has their own
reasons, but in the end they all lead to the same result: the passing of one’s own life, the missing
of one’s own aliveness.
We want to take the audience on a journey between reality and fiction. We want to expand the
boundaries of fantasy and blur barriers between reality and imagination.
Thus, we walk a fine line between madness and boundless imagination, between the escape from
life and vivid fantasy, between self-protection and repression.
