A light-flooded 500 square meter room. Step 7, the living room of dancer and choreographer Felix Ruckert. Here he meets Mara Morgen, a socially-inclined culture worker. Together they experiment with their secret desires and what is officially allowed, delving into a game of dance, meditation, pain and sex. An intimate, reflective journey to the edge and beyond, accompanied by a flowing camera’s gaze.
