Inhalt

A Time for Fishes

19-year-old Robert lives with his mother Anna in Halle-Neustadt, once Eastern Germany. The economic boom hasn′t reached here, and so Anna is constantly looking for jobs for herself and her son. But Robert would rather be a musician or a revolutionary than lead an eventless life with a boring job in the derelict high-rise district.

At first glance, it seems that Jana, who is hiding with her older brother Clemens in an abandoned kindergarten, lives that unbound life which Robert desires. The two siblings ran away from a bourgeois hell, but now Jana has to look after Clemens. Meeting Robert seems to them more like a threat.

It is only after the brother and sister get into even greater trouble after a brawl with some other youths that they let Robert help them. A tender love develops between Robert and Jana, but it becomes increasingly burdened by the demands of Robert′s mother and Jana′s brother. In the hopes of leaving ′HaNeu′ together, both try to free themselves from their dependent relationships. But it is hard to let go – and so catastrophe looms...

A formally uncompromising story about love and responsibility in an age of social disaffection.
