Two women, friends in the middle of their lives. But the business of everyday has kept them at a distance. Now they want to reconnect with something that once was, but is no longer. One of the women has made herself comfortable in a neoliberal life and lifestyle, the other has become lost pursuing an academic career without a future. Decisions have been made. While on a walking holiday together in the Czech mountains it is not only the near-impassable terrain that keeps pulling them off their joint route, but also jealousy, fear and shame. Ella & Nell is a gentle, nostalgically funny story about friendship and inexorable decay.
