A family spends three summer days in a beautiful lake mansion close to Berlin. Together with her new lover, Irene visits her brother Alex, who still inhabits the house with his writer son Konstantin. Konstantins girl-friend pops in, too, and all of them drift away from each other more and more. The main characters of Chekhov’s The Seagull, today, here, on three lovely, hopeless summer afternoons.
