The Sun Is Burning

It's summer. Zou and Anselm are newly in love and spend their afternoon at the lake. A fairy tale seems to have come true. The mood is peaceful, the light breaks on the waves and the sun's rays warm their skin. But then Anselm's friend Gustav shows up, and reality returns with him. The ease has vanished, the sun is burning and their young love is suddenly questioned. Is this love at all? A narcissistic impulse? Boredom? Or just the fear of being alone? The more Zou racks her brains, the more uncertain she becomes, and suddenly her life and dreams begin to falter. Lost and bored, she sets out to find her place in a seemingly free society whose concepts of life have been severely disrupted by globalization and social media.
