Summer heat on the Baltic Sea. In a holiday cottage on Ahrenshoop, a struggling young author and his best friend meet a young ice cream saleswoman and her lover, the lifeguard. Christian Petzold ("Undine") has succeeded in creating a wonderfully shimmering tragicomedy in changing constellations.
A hot, dry summer, like so many in recent years. Forest fires are uncontrollable. Four young people meet in a holiday home on the Baltic Sea not far from Ahrenshoop. Slowly and imperceptibly they are enclosed by the walls of flame. A red sky arches over them. They doubt, they are afraid – not because of the fires, it is love that scares them.
