A powerful story of heartbreak, loss and devastating secrets
Fighting to free herself from a toxic relationship, 21-year-old Lora escapes to her recently widowed grandmother’s home in Hamburg. When Daniel, Lora’s delusional ex, and a string of estranged relatives turn up, covert agendas emerge and conflicting views on sexual ethics surface, with sudden and surprising consequences. This vividly powerful, ‘no-holding-back’ debut confronts the darker aspects of history, offering a hidden narrative of post-war Germany. Quietly ambitious, funny and sometimes tragic, Windstill reveals the stories we tell to protect the ones we love.
