High summer and stifling heat in Germany: Lara (Giulia Goldammer) takes care of her one-year-old daughter, while her boyfriend Jacob (Thomas Schubert) slaves away as a cook. Everyday life is exhausting and a haze of frustration hangs over the couple. Recognition, whether in the relationship or at work, is lacking. One day, Lara wordlessly leaves the baby with Jacob and breaks out of the routine. She flees to her home in South Tyrol, where her estranged sister Ida (Barbara Krzoska) maintains her late parents' farm with a temp. But Lara's unexpected appearance opens up old wounds and disturbs the fragile peace. Can the sisters find their way back to each other and rewrite their life plans?
