Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 03/2019

Director Neele Vollmar's adaptation of Bov Bjerg's 2015 bestseller features the shooting stars Damian Hardung, Max von der Groeben, Luna Wedler, and Devrim Lingnau as four friends who have promised themselves that their lives shouldn't become boring. That's why they decide to do everything differently from what usually happens in the sticks: they all move into the Auerhaus and set up a flat share under the disapproving eyes of the villagers. They want to celebrate the moment, break all the rules – and, above all, save their pal Frieder from himself and doubts about the purpose of life. But how long can the walls of the Auerhaus protect the magic of this community from the outside world?
