Thoughtful and provocative drama about Europe's current sociopolitical crisis told through the allegory of a crumbling and twisted marriage.
Trapped in a boom and bust relationship with her young and immature husband Rich, Europe feels lost and disconnected from reality. Unable to deal with his sexual demands and the tragedy that has occurred because of his misconduct, Europe embarks on an unusual journey to find herself. On her way she’ll meet the people that have haunted her marriage and affected her life: Rich’s decadent mother, his corrupted friends, his innocent victims and most importantly his domineering lover Adam - a man who seems to dictate the fate of many, including hers.
The narrative unfolds across two threads: the black and white reality, which takes place inside their destructive apartment - and the fantasy, which takes place in her mind and in beautiful, challenging exteriors.The film is personal and global and can be enjoyed on two levels.

Their penthouse: Majestic, filthy and weird: reflects out world and reacts to them.
The view: Subtly changes to various cities to highlight society’s predicament. The more they ignore the noise outside, the worse it gets.
