Sergeant Major Eismayer is known and feared as the toughest officer in the Austrian armed forces, ruthless to recruits and unwavering in his discipline, order and manly toughness. However, when he begins to fall for Falak, a new recruit who shamelessly accepts his homosexuality, Eismayer's closet life is turned upside down. For a man like him, loving another man cannot match his vision of the model soldier. Will he choose to protect his tough guy armor above all else or will he be able to follow his heart and his true desire?
Eismayer is inspired by a true story. He addresses the issue of the stereotyped image of men and explores the extent to which sexual orientation is automatically associated with certain conventions and social roles.

Lalo is a sex-influencer: he posts photos of his naked body and homemade porn videos for his thousands of followers on social networks. Lalo directs her own life, but privately, out of character, she seems to live in a permanent melancholy. Where does desire itself go when life becomes a sexual show? Pornomelancholia takes pornography as a starting point to reflect on the relationship between sexuality and work, on being public and feeling alone, on the characters we build of ourselves to show ourselves (or hide) from the world.
