VIERTELMONAT is a melancholy comedy about friendship, the quest for happiness, loneliness, and the rich and complicated reality.
The film portrays the experiences of young 30-somethings in Berlin, focusing on Martha, who, after breaking up with her long-term boyfriend, escaped to Sweden but has now returned to her hometown.
Ex-matriculated from the university and initially homeless, she attempts to reestablish her old life. Although she does not know what she wants, she at least knows what she does not want. Gradually, her initial speechlessness morphs back into the old intimacy.
