Synopsis: Albert and Marta, both in their late 70s, live across the street from one another in a bustling section of Berlin's Mitte district. Every day at 9am, the two neighbors meet - each in their perspective windows - to watch the world unfold below them. One morning, the clock strikes nine but there is no sign of Albert. Set against the backdrop of a rapidly gentrifying Berlin, BIS GLEICH tells the story of two people who share a daily ritual, but have never actually met. Their unspoken connection deepens when, one day, they are forced to face the inevitable...together.

But for two lost people who will stop at nothing to avoid involvement, the lack of communication is the perfect scenario for staying unattached. A risk-free liaison that might stay anonymous as long as the events from the night before remain unremembered.
