    • Synopsis
    • It‘s a hot and suffocating weekend in the suburbs of Vienna somewhere between the autobahn and the exit roads, the hypermarkets and new housing estates. During these dog days of summer, six interwoven stories unravel, revealing a world of disillusionment and lonely souls. While the days are lazy and melancholic, spent lounging in underpants and bikinis; the nights, steeped in alcohol, sex and song unleash a fury of violence and raw emotions. With no respite from the oppressive heat, tension builds and tempers rise to an atmosphere of seething aggression. This is life at its most vulnerable and intimate.
