In 2002, Lana Kai­ser beca­me well known in the first sea­son of the Ger­man ver­si­on of the Idol tele­vi­si­on fran­chise. She was born in 1985 and went by her birth name Dani­el Küb­lböck. At only 17 years old she pola­ri­sed the audi­ence with her andro­gy­n­ous appearan­ce. In 2018 Lana disap­peared from a crui­se ship. Most media out­lets and the majo­ri­ty of the public didn‘t con­si­der cal­ling her by her cho­sen name, Lana Kai­ser. Phil­ipp Gufler’s short film is a per­so­nal por­trait of the sin­ger and entertainer.
