Franz and Julia love each other. They have been a couple for two years since he helped her out with some coins for the self-service laundry. From that day on, helping Julia out is Franz’ duty in life. He tries to keep everything bad away from her. But that one night he loses control. On their way home, Franz and Julia get harassed by some random aggressive guys. From now on nothing is as it was. Luckily nothing “bad” happened, their friends say afterwards. But that’s not the truth. For Julia something did happen: Franz didn’t protect her. He is so ashamed about this situation that he refuses to talk about it. Because the only thing he cares about is: “What did this guy whisper in your ear?”
