Logline

A young woman called Fiona turns up in a city in the Ruhr Area in Germany to work for the Bauer family as a housekeeper. Father, mother, daughter and son all live their own lives, co-existing without communicating. Nobody realizes that Fiona has made a decision. Only the neighbour starts worrying. Totem shows a family's routine spinning out of control with the arrival of a stranger.
