Elodie is 17. She's French. She lets down her hair and puts it up again. She finds reflective surfaces everywhere. She tests new looks. Otto is 15. He's a German soldier. He brushes his hair to make the shape of his head more perfectly oval. He tries not to look at himself in the mirror. It's 1944. Elodie and Otto are experiencing love for the very first time. Outside, the world around them is exploding. Inside, the room shakes. Elodie and Otto's bodies touch. Fusing youth with old age, the past with the present, pop tunes with Stalingrad, This Beautiful Future is about love in the extreme.
