A Film by Peter Bösenberg
and Stephanie Engel (Producer)


Inga unexpectedly arrives home early to her posh apartment late at night. “Backyard-Love” is a cheezy-humorous short film about three people who are unclear about their feelings for each other as lovers. Attempting to regain control of an increasingly absurd situation the characters reveal more of themselves than they would care to.
