Two teenage brother and sister, whose mother died a few weeks earlier, are
in search of their father. Their quest leads them to hospitals, nursing homes and holding
cells. In the course of the quest, they meet people who provide them – like in parallel
quantum universes – a glance into what their future lives may hold for them.
”Urban Tale” is an impressive cinematic experimental film, with a profound sense of
aesthetics and ingenuity. Based on a true story, this independent film is unique in its
cinematic storytelling. It is provocative and controversial but yet extremely gentle and
delicate in touch, thus it is thought provoking, penetrating mind, body and soul.
