Synopsis:
Jonathan (Jannis Niewöhner) is 23; he and his aunt, Martha (Barbara Auer), work on their farm. Jonathan also devotes himself to looking after his father Burghardt (André Hennicke), who has cancer. But his father stubbornly sabotages his son's efforts to care for him. Jonathan finds it increasingly difficult to cope until they hire a young caretaker, Anka (Julia Koschitz), to help. Jonathan and Anka fall in love; her experience of working at a hospice helps Jonathan to gain a new insight into his father's situation. But then Burghardt's long-lost boyhood friend Ron (Thomas Sarbacher) appears on the scene and his health visibly improves.
The family sees Ron as an intruder; then Jonathan discovers that, many years ago, his father and Ron were deeply in love. All at once, the facade of cherished family beliefs crumbles and long-repressed secrets come to light. Can Jonathan forgive his father?
