15 years ago, off the coast of Windholm, the sea disappeared, and so did the children. Since then this anomaly rests like a curse on the surrounding area. Ocean without water, eternal low tide. As the water disappeared, so did the children of the village. Sebastian Hilger's directorial debut WIR SIND DIE FLUT weaves a sci-fi drama exploring the notion of proximity and distance. 15 years ago, the sea disappeared off the coast of Windholm. The tide went out, and from that time on, it stayed out. For no apparent reason, just so. Since then, this anomaly creates discomfort, like a curse on the environment. Jana and Micha, two young physicists, set out to discover what's behind the mysterious phenomenon. Once in Windholm, they are drawn into the spell of a lonely village community without children.
