AM ENDE LICHT - LIGHT FALLS

A woman in a supermarket drops dead in front of the spirit shelf. At that very moment, Bernd, her husband, is meeting up with two women for casual sex in a hotel. One of their daughters, Jess, wakes up next to a stranger after a night spent together. The other daughter, Ashe, is a single mother who finally cuts all ties with her ex-boyfriend, a drug addict, after an argument. And Steven, the youngest sibling, reunites with his lover – a reunion that is overshadowed by his relationship angst.
