Easy-going Matthias moves into his rich family's holiday house on the French Atlantic coast with his girlfriend Camille and her young son, Etienne. Unfortunately his plan to spend some time together is upset when his older alpha-male brother David and his wife Lena turn up at the house for their holiday a week earlier than planned. Immediately, David takes over, attempting to control every situation with his typical air of superiority. Disapproving of David's imposing behaviour and impatient with Matthias' unwillingness to address the situation, Camille takes matters into her own hands with surprising results.

In his debut feature film, actor-turned-director Tom Sommerlatte demonstrates his cinematic flair, a hilarious script and a fantastic cast.

QUOTES FROM CRITICS:
"… is a funny mix of comedy and pool thriller. Throughout there is the feeling that anytime a lifeless body could be found floating in the water." Kathleen Hildebrand, Süddeutsche Zeitung
