Das Floß!

A Film by Julia C. Kaiser

Synopsis

Katha is sure: she wants to marry Jana and she wants to have a baby with her. But Katha’s childhood friend Charly has a special surprise for her: A bachelorette’s night out with the „guys“. A weekend. The five of them. On a raft. There is Ken, her „new“ best
friend, her little brother Tobi and, alas, Momo, the future sperm donor: this is bound to end badly. Floating! – an improvised tragicomedy on water.
