Festival starts in


Everything shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Timmo (Thomas Bartling), is trapped abroad. His best buddy Ben (Jörg Pauly) just got kicked out of his house by his (now ex-) girlfriend. Timmo offers him his couch even though he’s not at home. Timmo also forgot to mention that there’s a new woman in his life, Sara (Farina Violetta Giesmann), who already moved in. The thought of being together with his best friend’s girlfriend during the lockdown makes Ben extremely uncomfortable, especially because Sara’s open-heartedness creates a lot of awkward situations for him.
