DIE TOCHTER – (DARK BLUE GIRL)
Special Mention to Helena Zengel
When Jimmy and Hannah finally find a buyer for their holiday home on the Greek volcano island Santorini, the ex-couple returns to the place where they broke up two years ago. In tow: Their seven-year-old daughter Luca whose love the parents compete for. Hardly arrived on the island, old tensions and conflicts appear despite every effort to make it right. Above it all is Hannah, who is jealous of the close father-daughter-relationship she is not able to reach. But the upcoming sale of the house triggers something in Jimmy as well – the irrefutable end of his former dream: to have a future as a family.
