HOW TO BE NORMAL? This is the question PIA asks herself. In an attempt to get her life on track again she moves back into her parents’ house in the outskirts of Vienna – and soon discovers that she isn‘t the only one whose life is going off the rails. Also her parents ELFIE and KLAUS seem to lose track in an ever transforming world.
Gradually, as she fights for control over her body and a life caught between old loves, new job and psychotropic medication, Pia is transformed into a giant super-heroine who not only rescues her father from ruin but saves the whole world too. Or is she just having another psychotic episode?
