Una pareja enamorada es asaltada y humillada en sus vacaciones en Mallorca. De regreso a Berlín, donde trabajan como profesores de la misma escuela, comienzan a hacer terapia y tratan de retomar su rutina conyugal. Pero cuando Malte se cruza accidentalmente con uno de los agresores, la obsesión de venganza se apodera de él. La historia se adentra poco a poco en los caminos de la perdición y el tormento psicológico. Las imágenes dan paso a una suerte de ansiedad sin tregua en cuyo fondo proliferan las disyuntivas éticas, por la impotencia y la incomprensión, por el amor y la traición. Sven Taddicken aborda este complejo drama con tensión y ritmo admirables, cuidando tanto los elementos del thriller como los propios del melodrama y la crónica social. En su condición de agredidos, Malte (Maximilian Brückner) y Liv (Luise Heyer) se enfrentan al trauma de maneras muy distintas, ya sea desde la culpa, la venganza o el perdón. Pero el miedo está por encima de todo. ¿Existe una verdadera forma de compensación? ¿Podrán algún día continuar con su vida en paz?
Ticket sales start on 5.9. Full programme.
