It is in the near future. The World, as we know it no longer exists. For the past four years the sun has been shining with an immense strength, creating unbearable heat and splitting the earth into two pieces: one with...展开raging water storms, the other a dried up land with dying plants. Both unbearable for the human race. Due to famine the majority of the population has become extinct; the few survivors are living off horded food supplies. The cities are being raided and plundered. For those who still have food and drink, it is a struggle for survival. For some time now there have been rumors that the situation is improving in the mountains: apparently there is rain.
Marie (Hannah Herzsprung) and her sister Leonie (Lisa Vicari) attempt, with the help of Phillip (Lars Eidinger) and his rickety estate wagon, a journey into the mountains. The deal is simple: Marie shares a bed with Phillip and in exchange he shares his food supplies and keeps them safe. Far from their destination – without any gas left and a striking engine – they reach a desolate gas station. Whilst searching for fuel residues and something edible, they are caught off guard by a starved guy, who takes Leonie hostage and tries to black-mail them into handing their food supplies over. Phillip manages to defeat him. Once he learns that the guy, Tom (Stipe Erceg), can help them obtain gas and repair their car, Philip decides to take him along on their journey – the girls are reluctant.
It turns out that the log blocking their way was placed there on purpose by obscure figures in order to steal their car containing the food supplies and Leonie. In the aftermath it turns out that Tom is a much more reliable companion than Philip. During a rescue attempt he too is caught by the ruthless figures. Slowly Marie begins to realize that the thieves were not solely interested in their supplies but also in them. If she wants to see Leonie alive, she has to overcome her fear and –without Phillips help – fight the heat and the kidnappers.
A challenge that will take her places she could have never dreamt of....
