It could be said that Side-B is a film about music and how music unites people, whoever they are and where they come from. About that golden moment of personalized compilations and several tapes in which the most sincere and personal that you could give to someone were all those songs that you had shared together. It could also be said that Side-B is a film about what it feels like to be a foreigner, a film about isolation, about people falling into a world that is completely foreign to them and that pushes them to join, because unity is strength, they say But it is rather the story of Wang, a boy who has just lost connection with who he is and where he comes from; and it is also the story of Mioara, a girl from Bucharest who has just met; and it is also the story of Marisa, a hot-blooded dreamer who lives eternally in passing and of what there is between them, which is neither more nor less than a strange country, a few cassette tapes and a million dreams still to comply.

Live. Love. Dance. Now! Mae (Anna Posch) roams the streets of Vienna as a punk in her dead brothers Converse shoes. She lives on canned beer, sprays walls, tries her hand at poetry slams. She is not interested in bourgeois life but in extreme experiences. When she is sent to an AIDS center to work off a punishment, she meets and falls in love with Paul (Markus Subramaniam). CHUCKS is a touching coming of age film, telling the featherlight story of growing up between life and death.

Setz once wrote "If I were to get stuck in a lift with a character of contemporary literature, I would want it to be Mae. I don’t know whether I would come out safe and sound, but it would be worth it".
