In Christian Petzold’s (Barbara, Phoenix) Berlin Film Festival winning drama, four people trapped in a holiday house on Germany’s Baltic coast unravel as wildfires loom nearby.

Leon (Thomas Schubert) escapes to the idyllic seaside home to relax and finish his second novel, and his friend, Felix (Langston Uibel), joins him to complete his art portfolio. When they arrive they meet Nadja (Paula Beer), an effervescent woman whose sexual exploits with her lover, Devid (Enno Trebs), irritate as much as they peak Leon’s interest. The days are hot, and as the surrounding wildfires threaten their retreat, so does the crushing pressure of competition and creative doubt. As the group dynamic shifts, sexual tension and jealousy grow, and the fires draw closer to a shocking climax.
