A remote area in northeastern Germany. A couple from Hamburg moves into a lonely vacation home, she, a tireless self-optimizer in a midlife crisis, he full of longing for peace and food. In the deep woods a man with helmet and rifle, another without anything - even on the run? A run-down pizza saloon with a dancing landlady, a strange woman and hard drinks. Through the night a strange driver drives a dark limousine, on the back seat an aging, self-important late-night talker with his fishing rod and a beautiful young woman. Who is connected to whom? A game of confusion in a lonely idyll. There is chasing and flirting, deceiving and giving. Who hopes for what? And who expects what from life, love, the game?
A story about old and new love, fear and prejudice and the chase for dreams and thrills.
Shot in 3 days, with 9 actors*, 5 cameras and an open end. . .
