Synopsis: Lea is in her mid-twenties. Her parents finance her student life, which is colored by boredom and affluence. With no foothold and no direction Lea is letting herself drift. To escape the emptiness of her life she is continually testing the limits. A brief meeting with Lukas results in a closeness that is new for Lea. At first Lukas is prepared to follow Lea unquestioningly and they go to the deserted house of Lea’s grandfather. Here, time seems to have stood still. Surrounded by memories of a bygone time Lea and Lukas try to find a way to connect with each other.
