Using her skills of selling internet and insurance deals, young call center employee Alice calls up elderly strangers and pretends to be their granddaughter in urgent need of money. As this trick quickly makes her rich, the film observes people and places in Zurich, all mysteriously connected to Alice’s business.

Those Who Are Fine records from a distance the havoc Alice causes in Zurich. At the same time, mainly using intelligent observations and absurdist dialogues in his debut, Cyril Schäublin also sketches an ironic portrait of today’s Swiss society in which everyone is glued to their smartphone, strangers are asked if they can set up a wifi hotspot and identity fraud has become child’s play, thanks to social media.

Novel, story and script writer Feride Çiçekoğlu will be in conversation after the screening. Free of admissions. Drop in, no reservations.
