Summer Outside (formerly, Klang der Stille (working title)) is an emotional family drama and a homage to “allowing yourself to be a child”. Fourteen year-old Wanda (Maria Dragus) moves with her family to Switzerland. Everything should be better here. The big house with an untamed garden, an illylic town – to three children it all seems like a big promise.
But the new beginning proves difficult for everyone. The wish for an intact family and the desperate efforts to make it function better, inflames old wounds. When Wanda decides to win back her family, she’s pushed to the limit. An eventful summer.
