From the moment Nora and Aron first met, it felt like destiny—as if every part of the universe had conspired to bring them together on one rainy afternoon in a subway station. For Aron, who’s dissertation is focused on physics and relativity, his relationship with Nora would become a prime example of his theories on dreams, déjà vu, and the concept of experiencing your future before it occurs. But the world is about to change. After a sudden tragedy leaves Aron to die in Nora’s arms, Nora begins to question everything. If their meeting was fate, then what does that mean for their ending? While events unfold, RELATIVITY’s timeline mirrors Aron’s theories as the plot flips the past and the present, revealing the details of a love story that cannot be contained by linear time. Does everything truly happen for a reason? Buckle up for RELATIVITY’s time-bending drama and you may find out. (In German with subtitles) — G.S.
