Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 03/2018

Writer-director Florian Aigner goes back in time to the summer of 1990 for his fiction feature debut set in the two Germanies between the fall of the Berlin Wall and reunification on October 3rd as 16-year-old Katja and 17-year-old Thorben fall in love. She comes from the affluent Zehlendorf district of West Berlin, while he has grown up across the border in East Germany. That would be a big enough challenge for this innocent young love, but it's made even more complicated by the fact that their families are at loggerheads about the ownership of a house in the village of Kleinmachnow. While old wounds are being reopened and new prejudices start appearing, Katja and Thorben are determined to fight for their love...
