Synopsis : During a worldwide pandemic the marketing director Laszlo (48) isolates himself in his apartment due to a fear of contracting the virus. He avoids all human contact– even to his wife, Sabina, and their two children, who are staying at a vacation house. But one evening, his new neighbour Zoe (29) appears at his doorstep. ZOE's uninhibited relationship with KARL, which he now watches from the window, seems a welcome distraction in LASZLO's struggle to land new business and avoid his company's impending bankruptcy. DISTANZ was written during the lockdown, shot in just one apartment and produced completely independently.
