SOMMERMÄRCHEN

Ioana, a hardworking yet little acknowledged artist and Andrei, a well-meaning chef, have gone through life childless. In her 40’s, Ioana has developed an interest in the life of plants and believes they can communicate through vibration and have things to tell us. On the weekends they go exploring the flora outside Berlin. On one such trip they meet a couple of acrobats and their child. While the parents are bathing, Ioana plays with the child. On the way back to the city Andrei tries to convince her to give parenthood a last minute chance. When she resists him, their trip spirals into a whirlwind of doubts, questions and betrayals.
