Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 01/2017

West Germany in the 1980s: the ideals of the ‘68s have now reached the provinces too, bringing the desire for change and freedom. That goes too for the smart 17-year-old Ursula, who lives with her conservative family in a small village. Ursula's lonely life is upended when the left-wing-alternative teacher Siegfried Grimm appears. He and his friends organize self-liberation courses and peaceful protests against nuclear energy and weapons. Ursula becomes politically active and, of course, falls in love with the charismatic Grimm. Unfortunately it is not only she alone who experiences a ‘Summer of Love’. As Grimm seduces all the local women and his sermons reveal themselves to be just empty words, Ursula plans her revenge.
