In the countryside, siblings Leah and Theo live with their grandmother in an isolated farmhouse. But it’s when their grandmother suddenly dies, and the two kids find themselves completely on their own, that Leah – on the brink of puberty – has her first encounter with the opposite sex. We watch as Leah struggles to cope with being the woman of the house, and we see her torn between taking responsibility for her brother, and being thrust into womanhood. As a thunderstorm approaches and, along with it, a group of troublesome teenagers, Leah and Theo’s paradise is threatened to be destroyed forever.

Directed by Anna Roller, Cinematography by Felix Pflieger, Colorgrading by Ze Maria Abreu Santos, Produced by Mahnas Sarwari & Adrian von der Borch, A HFF München Production
