Point Zero (2012)
by Oliver Schwarz

Three young dropouts live a secluded life in an abandoned mansion. However, their dream of freedom seems over. A pregnancy and the pending issue of paternity put their friendship to test. They have reached the point of decision. The point of no return. Point zero. «Point Zero» is a visually uncompromising short film about the thin line between freedom and responsibility. A trip to the mental and bodily pain threshold.dadurch alles verliert.
