Based on the Greek myth of Medea, Rumors depicts a mythical woman by interviewing the people in her surroundings: these are shameless portraits of members of the royal court as well as stereotypes of our contemporary society. The characters are played and voiced by actors and laypersons. A Grand Hotel serves as the kingdom.
