In director Julius Ševčík's own words: "Normal/Angels Gone takes place in a world where objects, structures, thoughts and characters lose their original shapes. In a world sinking into chaos and madness." It's a story about a man defending a serial killer in the recession of 1930's Germany, and it looks to be beautifully lensed with a possible hint of noir. I'm in!

Based on a true story, this psychological thriller is set in Germany during the recession in the 1930s. Young, ambitious lawyer Justus Wehner gets his first big case – the defence of brutal serial killer Peter Kurten. Wehner is certain that Kurten suffers from a severe mental disorder and to prove it delves deep into the killer’s past, motivation and psyche. Then, Kurten’s wife Marie arrives, and together with Kurten, starts to manipulate Wehner into assisting them with one last crime. Now, Wehner has to fight not only to win the complicated case but also to save his soul.
