On vacation in the Mediterranean, a young couple find their relationship pushed to the brink in this smart, sexy drama from acclaimed filmmaker Maren Ade. On the surface, Chris and Gitti appear to be blissfully in love while enjoying the sun and sand of Sardinia. But the more time they spend together, the more their silly games and playful teasing begin to unmask hidden fears and desires. When they accidentally run into another couple, seemingly happier and more successful, the tensions between them erupt.
