The world financial crisis is over. A small circle of rich Western people has survived the economic breakdown and they spend their holidays in a remote luxury hotel in India. Miss Else joins her aunt to spend her holidays there. She receives a message from her mother disclosing that her father has enormous debts and her mother asks Else for help. This gets Else into serious troubles – with deadly consequences.
"Else" is a modern literature adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler's Fräulein Else. "Else" was filmed in India.
"Anna Martinetz's debut feature adapts an Arthur Schnitzler novella in intriguingly stylized fashion." (Dennis Harvey in Variety)
