Inspired by Antonín Dvořák’s opera “Rusalka”.
Variations of intimacy.
During his trip to a hotel, radio presenter Prinz is haunted by fragmentary memories.
Did he drown Rusalka, the woman he loves? Uncertain, he enters the suite. Suddenly Rusalka appears before his eyes – in the form of a mermaid. Fascinated, he surrenders to her. This time she drowns him.
The next morning, Mr. and Mrs. Prinz gather silently at the breakfast table.
Was it all just imagination? Magic? Or did they live out a fantasy?
Three variations of the story blend into three variations of intimacy.
