Undine works as a historian lecturing on Berlin's urban development. But when the man she loves leaves her, the ancient myth catches up with her. Undine has to kill the man who betrays her and return to the water. So when her lover Johannes leaves her for another woman, Undine thinks she has no choice – until in the moment of betrayal, she meets Christoph, an industrial diver, and unexpectedly falls for him. This is a new, happy and innocent love filled with curiosity and trust. But when Christoph starts to feel that Undine is running away from something, she has to face her curse once and for all. She doesn‘t want to lose this love.

Message from the Coolidge regarding their COVID-19 policy:

For the safety and comfort of all who attend our screenings, we are updating our COVID policies to require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test for all screenings and events at the Theatre, beginning Friday, September 3.
Proof of vaccination may include a vaccination card, or a legible image of the card on a phone paired with a photo ID. The relevant items must be presented for admission in person when guests arrive at the theater.
If guests are unable to be vaccinated or to verify vaccination for any reason, proof of a negative COVID-19 test (PCR test within 72 hours or antigen test within 24 hours) is required and can be provided by showing a photo or email of the negative test results from a clinic, testing center, medical professional, or a time-stamped photo of an at-home test.
Children under 12 who cannot yet be vaccinated may attend accompanied by a fully-vaccinated adult, and they must also wear a mask.
Our existing mask policy (masks required unless seated in a theatre and consuming food and drink) will remain in place. Earlier this year, the Coolidge upgraded its HVAC with high MERV-rated, Continuous Infectious Microbial Resistance (CIMR) technology.
