Det andet liv (Jonas Elmer, DK, 2014)

Every moment we make choices that define our being and create patterns in our lives. Sometimes those patterns are broken ¿ by faith, decision or coincidence. The film is about such moments when our lives are drastically changed. A multi plot drama, created from three years of acting improvisations, the film follows three characters whose lives are woven together by internet dating and by their persistent search for some kind of meaning in life.
