IN GOOD FAITH

In her feature film debut, she was awarded the Hessian Film Prize in 2019 for her screenplay, director Frauke Lodders tells the story of siblings growing up in well-protected surroundings within a strictly conservative family.

Siblings Hannah (17) and Timothy (15) grow up in a strict evangelical family and lead a seemingly fulfilling life in their free church community. When Hannah falls in love with her new neighbour Max (17) and Timothy discovers that he is attracted to men, their feelings clash with their family's values. In order not to go against these values, Timo takes part in a so-called "counselling seminar". Hannah also does everything she can to maintain her faith and, with a heavy heart, refuses to let Max get close to her. Confronted with their needs and the expectations of their family and the community, Hannah and Timothy find themselves at a crossroads and come into conflict with their parents.
