We’ve all left someone.
Deep night. In a motel room on the outskirts of Copenhagen, Christian, 19 years old, has just fi nished having sex with a 38 yearold prostitute, Lulù. Christian asks her for one more hour, just to talk. Lulù agrees to stay. As emotions rise, the pains and demons of these two lives scarred by violence and destruction are revealed. An hour lived in real time in which there is no escape from this physical and psychological realm. We’ve all left someone: the past cannot be erased.
