Die Tochter (Dark Blue Girl) – Closing Night Selection

When Jimmy and Hannah finally find a buyer for their decrepit holiday home on a Greek volcanic island, the former couple return for the first time to this place where they separated exactly two years ago. Their seven-year-old daughter, Luca, who is adored by both parents, accompanies them – something the little girl is not averse to and uses their devotion to her advantage. No sooner do they arrive on the idyllic island in the Aegean than the old tensions and conflicts begin to resurface.

Hannah in particular is jealous of the intimate relationship between father and daughter – a relationship from which she is almost aggressively excluded. But then something happens that nobody expected: Hannah and Jimmy grow closer to one another again – and this once more throws Luca’s world into confusion. Although her parents’ separation at first felt like being expelled from paradise she has made herself at home in the second best of all worlds. But if the adults have now decided to change everything around again – or even go back to the way things were – they should at least be aware that their daughter has enough sand in her pockets to really jam up the family works!
