2019, Lischke & Klandt Filmproduktion, 109 min, Germany, Dir: Christian Klandt

Luise Heyer stars in this day-in-the-life portrait of Lene, who manages a popular blues and jazz bar in Germany. After a long break away from her trade, Lene returns with conflicting feelings of excitement and anxiety as she awaits the arrival of Leif, a popular musician she discovered in Copenhagen who is set to play in her bar. As the day goes on and Lene chats with everyone from deliverymen to plumbers to barflies, a certain poetic rhythm sets in, and even the most mundane tasks become compelling tableaus of everyday life.
