An industrialist in the satellite business/art collector and his wife/former assistant, a young artist/second generation immigrant and her assistant/lover. A weekend in a villa far away from the city and the mobile phone network: the view is stunning, the drinks are plentiful, the conversation is stilted. In a series of snapshots the characters including Maria the housekeeper reconstruct the entire weekend they have spent together. Schimmelpfennig probes whether the five people present might possibly be capable of achieving some kind of workable solidarity in the face of a looming misfortune.
