The door has been closed for many weeks. A teenager has locked himself in - shutting out a helpless father, mother and sister. In Japan, the youths like him have already been given a name: the Hecticomorous (the secluded). The phenomenon is also beginning to spread throughout the Western world. The only thing a whole family can do is stand in front of the locked door and ask, beg, implore, throw tantrums, despair, accuse, ignore and hope. All the while, the door is becoming increasingly mirror of their own lives.



Born in Münster, Germany, in 1978. She studied graphic design in Hamburg and then literature, culture and media in Siegen. She directed several commercials, music videos and the short fiction film Ausreichend (2011). Different Kinds of Rain is her first feature film.
