A promising career in the riot control unit, a child on the way, a loan from his parents to buy a duplex: everything is running to plan in Marc's life. Then fellow policeman Kay walks into his life at the police training academy. They start jogging together, bringing a breath of fresh air into Marc's life -- and, for the first time, he develops feelings for a man.
Torn between the life he knows so well and the exhilaration of this new adventure, his life rapidly spins out of control. In this state of free fall, Marc cannot make anyone happy anymore. Least of all himself.
FREE FALL is part of a new wave of powerful German cinema. Stephan Lacant's first feature film tells the dramatic tale of a man who finds himself outside the clear-cut boundaries of his world. Exceptional performances from Hanno Koffler (SUMMER STORM), Max Riemelt (BEFORE THE FALL, THE WAVE, IN THE FACE OF CRIME) and Katharina Schüttler (SOPHIIIIE!) provide a moving portrayal of what happens when life plans crumble and there is no way left to fulfil the needs of the people you love.
