    • Synopsis
    • APPLE (NADJA UHL) owes her peculiar first name to her mother Ingrid (HANNELORE ELSNER). Never again does she want to live the chaotic life of her childhood. In 1967, in Spain in a tent at a hippie beach, when Apple`s mother had a passionate love affair with KARL. Now, thirty years later, APPLE’s love life is a mere disaster, her only friend and confidant being her dog. Ingrid, the once topless queen of the beach, still a free spirit, returns as a package holiday tourist to Torremolinos. The hippie beach has gone and she hardly recognizes the place, now distorted by hideous new hotels, invasive animators and partying youths. An encounter with a refugee, landing by boat and the acquaintance with TIM, a gender bender (HINNERK SCHÖNEMANN) force Ingrid to reflect on her past. When Apple arrives in Spain to visit her mother, she is in for a big surprise.
