One Last Evening

by Lukas Nathrath

A well-observed and truthful snapshot of the generation Y with awkwardness, anxiety, humor and poignancy resonating across generational and any other borders. With just a few brushes, Lukas Nathrath creates full-rounded characters in an amazingly accomplished and inventive debut.

In the standstill of the pandemic summer, a young couple wants a fresh start, moving from Hanover to Berlin. Lisa is an on-the-rise doctor bracing herself for a new position, Clemens is a talented but unsuccessful singer-songwriter crippled by self-doubts. To say goodbye, they host a dinner party in their now empty flat. But good friends cancel — and uninvited guests show up. As the attendees start eying each other's achievements, the evening slowly escalates, leading to an emotional crash that uncovers misunderstandings, rivalries, animosities and anxieties.
