Summer Storm

Series: Queer Commons Film Festival

A summer coming out story to thaw the January chill!

Tobi and Achim have been best friends for years. They've helped their team win several rowing cups and are looking forward to an important regatta in the countryside. But as Achim’s relationship with his girlfriend grows more serious, Tobi feels increasingly confused and left out. Tension mounts as rowing teams from across Germany gather to train for the regatta, and Tobi, Achim and the others head towards a confrontation as fierce and liberating as the summer storm gathering over the lake. SUMMER STORM highlights the emotional confusion of young people at the threshold of adulthood. Bolstering the film’s authenticity is the dazzling characterization of Tobi by Robert Stadlober.
