The true story of an impossible love…
Georg and Grete Trakl are siblings. She’s a highly gifted pianist, he will become one of the major expressionist poets. Determined, desperate, torn apart between guilt, burning love, social pressure and mad desire, they find themselves incapable of resisting the prohibited passion which transcends and destroys them.
