Pencil Knife Baton

Pencil Knife Baton

60th TIFF: World Premiere

A black quantum comedy. Four roommates in Berlin are looking for meaning and identity. Forgotten sick gods, in an almost parallel universe, are trying to fight injustice. Can people get along with their injured ideals? Can the pursuit of personal truth go hand in hand with social justice? Perhaps solidarity and humor are the only batons between the two worlds.
