Sugar Orange

A young love in the shadow of an old friendship that was not meant to be love.

Leo is SUGAR, Clemens is ORANGE. Together they are two eleven-year-old boys who are inseparable. More than just playmates, they share a unique bond which seems predestined to last a lifetime.

Until powerful emotions come to the fore and a misunderstanding leads to a rift which tears both them and their world apart.
Sixteen years later Leo is still terrified of being abandoned. He survives by forming loose relationships which don’t threaten him. Then one day he meets Lena who turns his feelings upside down. They seem to be made for each other. But Leo shuts himself off from her. He cannot forget the old story with Clemens.
Leo leaves the city. He wants to forget and needs to be for himself. But Clemens haunts him in nightmares and in his sleepless nights he starts longing for Lena. For the first time in years, he has found a new bond of trust with her.
But Lena can’t get hold of him: He keeps running away, he talks in his sleep. Lena does not want to give up. What is it that terrifies him? What is standing between them? What does she mean to him if he cannot trust her? Leo has to make up his mind. After years of silence he needs to see Clemens to exorcise their emotional ghosts.
