Occupied Summer

Two best friends, Arne and Elias are driving to Italy to see Elias` family heritage, a house that has been abandoned for more than twenty years. Upon their arrival they encounter the lively Zahra who has been staying in this house for a couple of years and generously offers them to stay over. Without letting her know about the purpose of their visit, they accept Zahra's invitation. After spending a pleasant night together Elias and Zahra have to face with the great tension lying under the surface of their relationship. Arne tries to reconcile the situation but overestimates his impact.
