Description:
Yella wants to leave her past behind and make a new life for herself away from the small town in Eastern Germany. A reflection on human survival instinct and the fine line between reality and illusion.

Yella has decided to leave her small town in eastern Germany for a promising job and a new life on the other side of the Elbe, leaving behind a failed marriage and broken dreams. In Hanover, Yella meets Philipp, a young executive at an equity firm, who gives her a job as his assistant. Yella soon discovers she has a knack with ruthless businessmen. Negotiations become a thrilling game of quick wits in which Yella's looks and icy demeanour are major assets. She could finally get everything she has ever wanted. But strange voices and sounds are plaguing her - truths from her past coming back to haunt her.

"Yella is the story of a woman leaving her broken marriage and job and moving west, where she succeeds in venture capital circles. Only at the end does she learn that she has been long dead - a horror film, then. "(Christian Petzold)
