Short Film: UNDERNEATH, 23min., Germany, Drama

Derya’s strictly religious family from Turkey abandoned her, when they found out that Derya expressed romantic feelings for another woman.

Since that day on Derya struggles with her inner conflicts; torn between the constraints of her religion and the love to her Partner. She is imprisoned in her own emotional Chaos, this drives her to rash and impulse decisions.
In this fragile state of mind Derya is tempted to try magic mushrooms. She dives into an abstract world, far from reality, in order to confront her problems and proceed on a journey to find her own truth.
