Still »Charly«
© Antonia Schäfer


Charly's name is actually Charlotte.

Charlotte lives only according to the expectations of others and flees from any confrontation. She flees from an impending breakup and gets off in the middle of the highway. He drives on - without her. Thus begins Charly's unwanted journey, on which she stumbles from one encounter to the next. On her way back to her fiancé Robert and the search for a charging cable to reach him, Charlotte encounters a wide variety of characters who increasingly push her to her limits. A confused man in the woods looking for his missing child - or a truck driver who worships a pin-up girl. They are all determined by grand-delusions, but they help Charlotte on her way back to herself.
