After the Communists built a wall through the village of Tannbach at the end of Season 1, dividing it into west and east, the fronts now harden in Season 2. While the Thuringian half-lives under Socialism in East Germany, the Bavarian half in the West enjoys the economic miracle of capitalism. Then the Wall claims its first victims. A microcosm of the division of Germany during the Cold War.

Apr 15 Maxi's next movie project "The Most Beautiful Couple" ("Das schönste Paar"), wirtten and directed by Sven Taddicken is already in pre-production for a shoot from April 25 to June 10, 2017. Zorro Filmverleih will release in Germany and Beta Cinema handles world sales.
The story of Malte (Maximilian Brückner), a young teacher, and his wife Liv (Luise Heyer), who gets raped by a young stranger in a tragic assault during their summer holidays. The couple shows an astonishing strength, dealing with that shocking event as rationally as possible. It takes a while to rebuild the trust in their relationship and their sexuality - but things turn out very well for the couple. Two years later, Malte meets the perpetrator again by accident. Malte cannot believe his own eyes and follows him around the city to gather information about him. But before he can address Liv or the police, it comes to a confrontation between the two men. Malte gets sucked into his longings for justice and revenge. And it looks like the real challenge for the "most beautiful couple" is still to come... Source: Berlinale Talents 2017
