SMILE

 

directed by Steffen Kohn

 

 

A trip down the rabbit hole.

 

Nineteen-year-old Mercedes is drifting rather aimlessly through life, except that she has one big dream: to go to the legendary electronic music festival Heimat. There, she is not only searching for friendships and even life-changing experiences. She also wants to meet Boy, a DJ that she has been chatting with on Facebook. Upon arriving at the festival, she soon finds out that Boy is already at a secret backstage party where he is going to play a surprise gig – one that requires a golden wristband to access… When a festival employee dressed as a Faun offers her one of the ubiquitous happy pills, Mercedes finally buys into the rules of the game.
