Prime Time

Prime Time

The last day of 1999. With a gun in his hand, Sebastian finds his way into a TV studio and takes two hostages. He demands only one thing – to make a live appearance during prime time. He wants to tell the viewers something extremely important and he is ready to put everything at stake to get his message across. Sebastian’s is a story of excruciating loneliness, the need for being accepted and the struggle with one’s own demons.

The film is the director’s feature-length debut.
