LONG STORY SHORT is an offbeat love story told through 8 chapters. It is a story about two geeky anti-heroes – the clumsy surgeon Ellen and the pride laddish Max, who through eight individual stories meet at eight wildly different parties. From the first spontaneous intense meeting, the two protagonists have to meet again at a birthday party, a wedding, a baptism, a surprise-party and a graduation party, until they then can surrender themselves to each other at a wake in the final chapter of the movie.
LONG STORY SHORT is a litigious, character-driven comedy that practices the details and rituals of the parties.
It’s a story about believing in love to be a rational choice be- tween the most suitable candidates. But as the anti-heroes will experience, love is far from rational, but is controlled by lust and destiny.
