Weiße Lilien · Silent Resident Never were apartment blocks more menacing, more inhabited by mystery, fear and control than the bright, white towers of New Town, a self-sufficient “living machine” on the outskirts of place and time. With the help of a motherly friend and colleague, Hannah leaves her violent husband and moves to a higher, and thus socially superior floor of her building. There her life quickly begins to derail. Why is she being observed by her new neighbours and spied upon by the internal security system? Why did the previous tenant commit suicide?
