Plot Summary

An American girl, Gina Lee is an alienated and disaffected female who has become disenchanted with hometown strip malls, sleaze bars, and rides along the river-side in her BMW. Impulsively she buys a discount airline ticket in a shopping mall travel agency. Destination: Vienna, the merry/sinister imperial city on the Danube. Gina Lee quickly slips into discreet, yet decadent dalliances at Cafe Central and at the notorious Hotel Orient, where she becomes embroiled in an intrigue to uncover buried Nazi plunder. Her liaison with rakish Karl Heinz Von Riegl builds to a furtive denouement at the Klimt Villa on the alpine shores of Lake Atter, whilst her fate remains unresolved. This is a black&white film poem infused with metaphor and mood, where the past overtakes the present, and the present overtakes the past. Written by The director
