Silent Storm (Stiller Sturm)

Silent Storm

Anne is a young woman who lives in a big city, by a river. She has her own apartment, directly behind the zoo. Day and night, she hears the screams of the caged-in animals. Screams that are searching for something, not answers, but rather questions ...

In her heart, Anne is lonely but she is not alone. It is a summer of extremes. Her unconventional best friend tries her best to pull Anne out of her lethargy. Four men cross her path and leave their mark on her life and her soul. But Anne is looking for something ... for love, closeness and security. She is searching, but she doesn't know what for. She finds it, but doesn't even notice it. Her life is shaped by the loneliness of the masses, by motionlessness in motion. Anne wants to break out.

It is Anne's summer, Anne's life - and in her heart a Silent Storm is brewing.
