Movie Info

The seventeen-year-old Phil (Louis Hofmann) is on the search. As little as he knows about his past and especially his father, his presence is so chaotic: with his mother Glass (Sabine Timoteo), who once again has a new lover (Sascha Alexander Gerak) who does not seem to give up as fast as his Predecessor. With his twin sister Dianne (Ada Philine Stappenbeck), who is increasingly withdrawing into her own world, which she shares with no one. There is an enigmatic ice age between Tereza (Inka Friedrich) and Pascal (Nina Proll), who also belong to Phil's patchwork family. Good at least to his best friend Kat (Svenja Jung), with the He can chill and hang out. And then it happens: A new pupil enters the class after the summer holidays and Phil falls immortal in the second. Nicholas (Jannik Schümann) seems to answer his feelings, but he also gives Phil many puzzles. The chaos is perfect. The first great love, but also envy, jealousy and mystery, which is not least the friendship with Kat to a hard trial. Phil's search for his center of the world is becoming more pressing.
