Set in a sunlit country of shiny, happy people, this drama offers a visually stunning look at the lives of contemporary Germans over the course of a single day. This film intertwines the stories of a police officer with a hidden passion; a documentary filmmaker who lacks vision; a pedicurist and his lonely older client; a wealthy couple who refuse to drive in a German car; a history student who is unmoved by a visit to a concentration camp; and a hermit living in the woods. In each case, something is missing, and these deceptively simple scenarios give way to incisive observations about German identity, leavened with warmth and laughter to create a darkly humorous modern fairy tale.
