Shot in a single take over the course of two hours and 18 minutes, VICTORIA follows its eponymous lead (Laia Costa, PALM TREES IN THE SNOW), a young woman from Madrid, as she meets four local Berliners outside a nightclub. Sonne (Frederick Lau, A COFFEE IN BERLIN) and his friends promise to show her the real side of the city. But these guys are in hot water: they owe someone a dangerous favor that requires repaying that evening. As Victoria's flirtation with Sonne deepens into something more, he convinces her to come along for a potentially lethal ride into the night. (Note adapted from Adopt Films.)
