When Leyla and Tristan dock at the jetty of a remote island, they quickly realise that they have landed in a mysterious place. At the invitation of an acquaintance, the young couple is set to spend a few days here surrounded by a community. Without knowing exactly what they are getting themselves into, Leyla and Tristan participate in a ritual practice that allows them to exchange their bodies with other people. Amidst the insular idyll, a game of identities begins that changes everything – their perceptions, their sexuality, their entire ego. In his feature film debut, director Alex Schaad, winner of the Student Academy Award, conducts a unique and surprising mind game.
