    Synopsis

    Adrian Semoti lives in the constant laps of his daily life since the separation of theatre actress Florina.
    One day Florina announces herself by sending back what he once gave her as a present.
    Neither new acquaintance nor family squabbling can distract him. The attempt to circumnavigate the final end of the relation, the separating couples bond inflames for the last time.
    A portrait of a relationship which seems not to be compatible with daily life. Attraction and rejection, desire and contempt lie close together.
    Located in the picturesque setting of a south German town Sophia Schillers directing debut provides an inside into the emotional life of her protagonists. Her view is always directed at the complexity of interhuman relationships.
