"Mein Ende. Dein Anfang." tells a story about love between crime and fate: For Nora (Saskia Rosendahl) and Aron (Julius Feldmeier) it is love at first sight when they meet on a rainy day in the subway. Their meeting was pure coincidence, Nora says. Everything is predetermined, says Aron. But then Aron is suddenly torn out of life. Time stands still for Nora. She numbs her pain, soon spends the night with Natan (Edin Hasanović), who appears again and again in her life as if by chance. He gives Nora a foothold. She has the strange feeling of already knowing him, but doesn't know what really unites her ...

Before the film, Lord Mayor Markus Lewe will officially open the 18th Filmfestival Münster. After the screening there will be a champagne reception in the foyer of the Schloßtheater.
