SYNOPSISCatena is a trip through five episodes, each one containing another genre. While all episodes build up on each other and lead to a dramatic climax, the separate parts tell stories on their own. The film portrays the principle of causality and shows how just a little decision can change your life forever - or put an end to it.Catena is a tour de force of drama, comedy, horror, thriller and does contain a love story aswell - a bad and gritty one. A bunch of people who have never heard o each other before, who have never met and who have nothing in common get tied together by fate and by their own decisions which are able to devastate the lifes of the others.In the end, Catena is an indie-film which tries to explore new ways of narration and yet it still can grab the audiences attention just like a chilling tension- and humor-filled flick with its wave at mainstream.
