Halbschatten (2013)

Summer days on the French Riviera. A hillside villa with an open sea view. Whoever lives here has made it. Merle follows the invitation of her lover, Romuald but upon arrival she only meets his children, Emma and Felix. They are not aware of their father's relationship. Thus, she will have to get along with the children who refuse to make contact in order to celebrate Emma's 13th birthday. At the same time, she must endure the impudence of 16-year-old Felix, who regards her presence as a provocation. A quiet but persistent fight for the status quo begins. Merle struggles for the possibility of a socially promising future, which is increasingly fading away before her own eyes.
