A perfect Place In rural Vorpommern, northern Germany, life is changing beyond all recognition: Villages are vanishing, people are leaving, houses sit empty.
Frank, too, is facing huge upheaval: his family has decided to move to the city. That, it seems, is their only chance of a bright future.
With their departure approaching, Frank realizes how attached he is to his home. As his wife, Kathrin, retreats ever further from the world, and Frank feels increasingly distant from his adolescent daughter and autistic son, he‘s forced to ask himself: Are things actually better somewhere else – or does „a perfect place“ only really exist within us?
A tragicomedy about a family living between a techno club and a brass band and a place between a nature reserve and a hog farm.
