UNDINE

Undine, a young woman, historian and tour leader in Berlin, lives in a small, impersonal flat and has a typical big-city life. And happens to be cursed. As normal as her life seems, when her boyfriend leaves her the curse says she must kill him and return to the water from which she came. But Undine fights her fate: She does not want to kill, she does not want to leave. At the moment of the betrayal Christoph appears, and she falls in love with him. He is an indus­trial diver and shows her his underwater world – which she knows already. They are happy together. He is impressed by her education, she by his shrewdness. And he senses she is running away from something. Now, because he feels he is being betrayed, Undine has to make a new decision.
