Three brothers and sisters, born in an alternative housing cooperative and only partly raised together, meet again on the occasion of their father Hans' passing. The unexpected appearance of Hans' daughter Kyra, who was out of touch for over 20 years, sends the siblings on a soul-stirring journey into their mutual childhood.
They never expected Kyra to turn up again. The two brothers and their sister, brought together when their father dies, are stunned by the appearance of their sister. Kyra suddenly vanished over twenty years ago during the breakup of the hippie commune where they were all born. She is like a stranger to them now... but when she discovers that her very existence has been kept secret, she starts to uncover old mysteries. And soon all the brothers and sisters find themselves unearthing the roots of their childhood memories they had surpressed in order to survive. In her debut feature film Marie Kreutzer embarks upon an intriguing and disturbing journey into the past, a gripping study of belonging and solitude, bonds and freedom.
