Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 04/2018

STUDIOCANAL's German production arm, STUDIOCANAL Film, is partnering with PANTALEON Films for the very first time to produce Tim Trachte's adaptation of Jessica Koch's bestselling debut novel.

The story of trust, courage, pain and despair, and the strength to let go is based on Koch's real-life experiences, with the central roles of the two young lovers being taken by the 19-year-old Swiss actress Luna Wedler – who was selected as one of the European Shooting Stars at this year's Berlinale – as the fun-loving Jessica and Jannik Schümann (CENTER OF MY WORLD) as the dashing, confident Danny who is harboring a dark secret beneath his seemingly perfect façade...
