Scene from THE DAYS TO COME (photo © Ralf Braum)

THE DAYS TO COME is the story of an upper middle-class Berlin family on their personal journey from the present day into a near future, a journey into a time of uncertainty and grave changes. Due to a rare antibody reaction, Laura Kuper has to choose between her desire to have children and Hans, the love of her life. Her sister Cecilia is driven into the abyss of a newly developing terrorist movement by her unreturned love to Konstantin. And then there is Philip, the youngest child of the family, pulled into a hopeless war for Germany for the few remaining oilfields of Asia.

A destabilized family tackles a destabilized world, entering their future with all their hopes and fears.
