A love triangle forms between post-Enlightenment writer Friedrich Schiller and two sisters - one who became his wife, and the other, his biographer.

The aristocratic sisters Charlotte and Caroline both fall in love with the controversial young writer and hothead Friedrich Schiller. Defying the conventions of their time, the sisters decide to share their love with Schiller. What begins playfully, almost as a game among the three of them, soon turns serious as it leads to the end of a pact.

DE/AT/CH, 2014, 133 min., Dir. Dominik Graf
