A deliriously happy couple in their late 30s buy an old house in the country and plan to fix it up over the summer. When Thomas invites his older brother, Friedrich, who is deeply depressed over the failure of his business and his marriage, to join them, she is disappointed by the intrusion. Thomas tries to counterbalance the cloudier mood with an impetuous frenzy of activity, but Hanna retreats into sullenness and retaliates by bringing in her young godchild. Young sexiness has nothing to do with a soothing impact on Thomas.
