Eva – 25, drifter, Berliner, poet, pet-owner, sex worker, virgo, addict, housewife, feminist, model – declared privacy outdated at 14. This tale of a woman growing up in the age of the internet, turning the search for self into public spectacle, challenging what a woman “should be“, shows, through her fragmented personalities, the emergence of a generation, where the idea of fixed identity has withered.
