DUST ON OUR HEARTS (STAUB AUF UNSEREN HERZEN)

30-year-old Kathi is dependent on her successful mother who, in turn, uses her daughter for her own needs. When her father suddenly appears to confront the family with their past, Kathi steps up to her mother.

Kathi wants to make it as an actress in Berlin. However, her slow quirky manner doesn't go down well in this line of business. She is the opposite
of her controlled mother Chris, a successful “life coach” undermining Kathi's attempts at independence. When Kathi has to give up her 4-year-old son for a short while, Chris seizes the moment and takes her daughter's child away.
Furthermore, Kathi's father Wolfgang suddenly appears because he
wants to win back his ex, Chris. Kathi is immediately caught in the middle of her
parents. Wolfgang reminds the family of their past until mother and daughter can no longer suppress their conflict. Finally, Kathi manages to confront her mother.
