In the summer of 1989, competitive swimmer Hanna has a lifelong dream: to win the Olympics. But when her best friend Andreas is targeted by the state and wants to flee across the Baltic Sea to the West, Hanna decides, after some hesitation, to accompany him. 50 kilometers of water separate them from freedom. And only a thin, connecting cord around their wrists saves them from absolute loneliness. (Festival information, Max Ophuels Prize 2024)
