What happens when you know about a crime that you have not yourself committed? When do you become an accomplice and not simply a witness? Thomas, an amiable man in his mid-forties, has resolved to take a relaxing skiing holiday in the Swiss Alps. Things get more complicated than usual when Sarah, his manager’s daughter, joins them. In the hope that his daughter and the 15-year-old girl will get on, Thomas allows them to spend the evening at a party in the village, despite his wife’s skepticism. The night has irrevocable consequences for both Sarah and Thomas, who is the only other person who knows what happened. As a responsible adult, Thomas ought to intervene. Instead he turns a blind eye to the situation, he keeps his spirits up, even though things have long since been out of control and becomes increasingly entwined in a web of half-truths and outright lies. Micha Lewinsky’s third feature film casts a spotlight on the brilliant Devid Striesow, whose character slowly drifts from normality to madness.
