It‘s high summer in the middle of nowhere, Mecklenburg, Germany. Five houses, one bus stop, cows, and nothing but fields. Twenty-four-year-old Christin (Saskia Rosendahl) lives on the farm of her long term boyfriend Jan, twenty-five (Rick Okon). The exciting post-reunification years that defined her childhood are long gone. Her relationship is loveless. Her father drinks. Christin, too, keeps the cherry liqueur under her car seat. In the shimmering heat of summer, time seems to stand still – until forty six-year-old wind energy engineer Klaus (Godehard Giese) arrives from Hamburg and sets the world spinning again.
