Buddies Leon (Thomas Schubert) and Felix (Langston Uibel) stay at a house with the intention of finishing up their personal projects - Leon's frustrated with his new novel (which he's calling Club Sandwich) while Felix has to work on his portfolio (his subject is "water") - and spend time hanging with Nadja (Paula Beer), who also happens to be living there with "rescue swimmer" (not lifeguard) Devid (Enno Trebs); later on, wildfires become a serious issue in the area.  It's kind of astounding at how unengaging and lackadaisical this is from the very beginning and continues to be like that for its entire runtime: not a whole lot takes place, Leon's an insufferable grump and Nadja (for whatever reason) keeps wanting to be around him despite his surliness.  Not much is really revealed about Felix and Devid either, except that they serve as the narrative's sacrificial lambs: they're incinerated by the flames and then act as the "inspiration" for Leon to magically transform into a better writer.  It doesn't have anything meaningful to offer regarding global warming, although I bet the rest of the world would have appreciated a conflagration scorching Germany in the late 1930's.
