Niels Holstein Kaa, Denmark, 2016

93 min.DK/Feature

Winter finally comes to an end, and Marie dives to the bottom of the local swimming pool. The bicycle lanes and street cafés slowly come to life, and soon sunbathers gather at the beach. From behind his hotel desk Niklas watches the passing of summer. At the opposite side of town Nina sets out for her first day of junior year to the tune of Beach House.
Why do some people become lovers and others not? The film is a personal anchored story of three different people's experience with short-term relationships. The film investigates why some love relationship never develops, in a mix of documentary and fiction narrative.
