    • Synopsis
    • Formentera – a holiday island in the sun. It seems like paradise to Nina and Ben who are going on their first vacation together since their daughter was born three years ago. Leaving their child with Nina's parents, the couple departs from Berlin with a commitment to do something good for themselves and their relationship.
      On the island they are freed from the confines of everyday life but now begin to question everything they once believed in – including each other. When a beautiful young woman, whom Ben is attracted to, is presumed dead in the aftermath of a wild beach party, Nina’s and Ben's paths back to a more normal life seem insurmountable.
      In her second feature, Ann-Kristin Reyels tells the story that many young couples can relate to. It raises the question about dreams that have withered in the day-to-day routine of life in a big city with a child. Where has the future gone to that once seemed so bright as the midday sun on Formentera? What became of the plan to lead a different life, of not becoming like their parents?
