Dir. Jakob Erwa, 2016, Germany/Austria, 115 min, In German with English subtitles

This beautiful and intricate story of love, loss, desire, secrets and self-discovery begins when Phil returns from summer camp to find that his very unconventional mother and his twin sister, who has started sneaking out of the house at night, aren’t speaking to one another. Rather than try to unlock the mystery of these unusual developments, Phil hangs out with his best friend, eating ice cream and playing dress-up until a new student arrives at school – the handsome and magnetic Nicholas. Love blossoms, but Phil comes to realize that he must deal with the problems of his past in order to deal with the issues of his present.
