| Tense thriller based on real events
Hannes Baumgartner's acclaimed debut is a methodical portrait of toxic masculinity, inspired by the true story of the "midnight murderer" who made head- lines in the 1990s.

In a captivating and unnerving performance, rising Swiss star Max Hubacher (also lead in The Captain) plays Jonas Widmer, one of the leading long- distance runners in Switzerland with an ambition to compete in the Olympics. Despite a difficult childhood and the recent suicide of his brother, Jonas is leading a successful life as a text-book overachiever. However, when Jonas loses his title during a home race, a primordial desire that has long been meticulously and painfully kept at a distance simmers to the surface.
