The film takes place in the 21st century. Mimi wakes up and her computer relays the order: "Go back to start. Let´s load Ludwig!" A sort of chase through her past and future begins. A lalographic monument.
In Loading Ludwig, Mattuschka employs mirrors, lenses and glass to dramatize the disfigurement of her face. Mattuschka appears in almost all her films from the 1980s, though in a variety of changing identities and pseudonyms, same of them male – she never seems to be the same individual.
