Stanbury - a small village in the southwest of Yorkshire. The countryside is distinctive and romantic, and this is where five German friends have been spending their holidays together for years now in the old Stanbury House. However, this idyllic scene, which seems to deny the existence of any argument or conflicts, is deceptive. For things between Alexander (Bernhard Schir), Tim (Dirk Martens), as wife Evelin (Gesine Cukrowski), Patricia (Eva Herzig) and her husband Leon (Felix Eitner), who all pretend to be one big happy family, are not really harmonious at all. Jessica (Christine Neubauer) has become engaged to Alexander and is therefore new to this A circle of friends -- and can peer behind the facade with an objective eye. She quickly notices that nothing is the way it seems. Jessica, who finds it increasingly difficult to bear this hypocrisy, begins to take refuge in long, lonely walks. Then, a terrible crime marks the end of decades of silence and confronts the survivors with their own very personal truths.
