Daniel Sieger is a washed-up loser living in a run-down flat, simultaneously serving as his computer-repair workshop. The disillusioned computer nerd struggles through everyday life, quarrelling constantly with his girlfriend Helen. At the time the audience joins our hero, his relationship is hanging by a thread. However, during a routine assignment Sieger’s world of tedium and disappointment is ripped out from underneath him when he discovers secret documents on a computer hard drive. From this moment on events spiral out of control and he suddenly finds himself the target of active worldwide Special Forces. With his confidant, the previously lethargic computer geek hatches a plan to free the world from one of its greatest dangers.

Information for the Audience: 

REBORN was shot in Berlin in October 2014 and was completed within thirteen days. The editing process, visual effects and color correction lasted about one year.  From the beginning it was the idea to shoot this film as a promotion trailer for a planned feature and as a short that contains a coherent story. REBORN premiered in cooperation with the cinema chain CINESTAR in Berlin in February 2016. The movie was screened at the European Film Market of the BERLINALE and was regularly broadcasted on television at TELE5. The movie was part of the official selections of eleven film festivals and won three Awards so far.
