• synopsis

    Formentera – a holiday island in the sun. It seems like paradise to Nina and Ben, who are going on their first vacation together since their daughter was born three years ago. Leaving their child with Nina’s parents, the couple departs from Berlin with a commitment to do something good for themselves and their relationship. On the island, they are freed from the confines of everyday life but now begin to question everything they once believed in, including each other. When a beautiful young woman, whom Ben is attracted to, is presumed dead in the aftermath of a wild beach party, Nina and Ben’s paths back to a more normal life seem insurmountable.
