German Age Rating

Watch Trailer

A multimedia web series about a mundane place of transit: An old rest stop on the highway. Cars race by, but many people pause for a while in the little diner with the big parking lot in order to ponder the great questions of life: Love, death, friendship, family – or the quality of their bratwurst. Director Christian Lerch portrays the haunt and its haunters.
