LOTUS is a mosaic film about loneliness and the impossibility to communicate. The story takes place in a day and a half and depicts four situations in a big city – in this case Rotterdam. A group of thirty-somethings has planned a day out together, but it is soon clear that the self-evidence of their initial love has vanished.
An elderly couple, who struggle with their relationship and their autistic son, try to make a new start, but old mechanisms can’t be easily dispelled. After a car accident, a slick guy is confronted with the emptiness of his life. And her mother’s euthanasia wish makes a woman see her own role as a teen daughter’s mother in a new light.
