Hierankl

Lene Thurner is standing on a train platform in Munich. She has to decide: back to Berlin where she lives, or toward the south, where at the foot of the Alps her family lives on the lonely farm "Hierankl". Lene hasn′t seen her family for years. She moved to Berlin when she was 17 after a nasty fight with her mother, Rosemarie. Now, she finally feels strong enough to return to Hierankl and face Rosemarie. Her father′s 60th birthday is a welcome reason to return, and she′ll also finally get to see her beloved brother Paul once again. She takes the train heading south.

On the same day, another surprise visitor arrives in Hierankl. Goetz Hildebrand, a friend of her parents from college days, shows up after 30 years. He knows Hierankl just as Lene remembers it and he knows how it was before Lene′s time: when he had a dramatic relationship with Rosemarie.

Lene immediately feels drawn to the stranger and she too becomes involved in a wild affair with him. Their relationship sets off a chain reaction that reaches its climax on her father Lukas’ birthday. Rosemarie invited Lukas’ mistress and officially introduces her to the guests. Rosemarie wants to bring some “warmness and order into this world”. Now Lene sees her chance to expose and clear up all the lies and secrets of Hierankl. She reveals that Rosemarie had an affair with Goetz after she married Lukas. Rosemarie’s reaction is brutal. In front of all the guests, Lene uncovers the secret of Hierankl...
