About this show

Seven Doors (Sieben Türen) explores modern life and the beyond, across ten separate scenes about ordinary people in extraordinary situations. This series reveals brief glimpses into grotesquely tragic lives, including a newly married couple who sit alone at their wedding reception -- so preoccupied with their own love and happiness, they forgot to invite any guests. The least significant person in the world is handed a package which holds the key to world power. At the cusp of his biggest triumph, an ingenious researcher commits suicide for fear of leaving any traces of his dangerous discovery behind, but in the afterlife he is greeted by Nothingness, which he forever will endure. Within Strauss' short segments, where reality and pretense clash, comedic sparks fly.
