Synopsis

Alice and Niklas are happy, they lack nothing - but a child. After a few failed invitros, they go on holiday to Elba to leave their wish for a child behind them. Right there, however, everything they tried to repress comes up again. A cheerful Tyrolean family moves directly into the neighboring house and seems to have everything that Alice and Niklas lack in life. Through an unforeseen disaster there is a change in their view of the things and meaning in their lives, in which the most natural thing in the world does not avail.
