Heimweh

Stefan breaks into cars and steals money to support his emotionally distant mother and younger brother who live in an urban council estate. Whilst he struggles to find a place to fit in, he finds himself more and more drawn to his neighbor Katya, who he senses might share more similarities with him than she cares to admit. Aware of his growing attraction for her, Katya plays with him in an attempt to make herself appear strong and superior. However, the more Stefan finds out about her, the more he exposes that she is not as at ease with her life as she likes to pretend. By chance, he discovers that Katya sells sex for little money to men on the estate in an attempt to feel adored and cared for. After initially using his discovery as a tool in the constant power battle that marks their fragile relationship, Stefan finally makes the dramatic decision to grant both Katya and himself a small respite from their complex lives.
