FISH SWIMMING UPSIDE DOWN, A (FISCH, DER AUF DEM RÜCKEN SCHWIMMT, EIN)

FISH SWIMMING UPSIDE DOWN, A
© DFFB

Andrea, a woman without a past – playful, direct, ethereal, vivacious, honest, unpredictable. Philipp and Martin are father and son – and both love Andrea. Andrea’s presence should fill the gap of Hanna, the recently deceased wife and mother. A summer of desire follows. But the inner emptiness inside each person begins to seek consolation, commitment and, not least, security. Its aim is to possess. Love is suppressed by fear, and the present disappears under the weight of tomorrow. Three people. One house. They live and behave outside of social norms and then fail because of their all too human needs. All that remains is emptiness and the question of guilt, which cannot be answered.
