rated for 0 + years
The precisely observed psychological study of a marriage, its failure and a possible future. After 13 years together, Sonja (Laura Tonke) and Marc (Ronald Zehrfeld) are breaking up. Before they sell their holiday house, the pair take one last trip together, during which they notice how attached they still are to each other. When the purchasers are delayed, Sonja and Marc spend one more night together at the house. In the search for the reasons for the failure of their marriage, they remember the happy times, the fights and the differing views of what love is. At first light, the couple have reached a point at which one word could change everything.
