Berlin 1999 – 2005. They‘re only just out of their childhood. They‘re vulnerable. Sven, Lena, Thomas, Stephan and Daniela. This is about their lives. Closeness is as terrible as loneliness. Everything is on show. There are no interviews. There are incidents, pictures, texts, letters, drama, pleas and promises. And a letter to me. T. Heise
