Germany is in the World Cup final and Berlin is dreaming again in a summer fairy tale, in order to, for a short time, forget the world torn by wars. But not everyone can, or wants to, get carried away. Udi, Roy,Serösha, Üzüm and Cato do not fit, regardless how hard they try. They are queer, they just arrived but still they are running away from each other and from everybody around them. But they have the same wishes everyone has: they strive for the feeling of of arriving and being in good hands: a love, a house, a child. A short hot summer of upheaval not everyone will survive. Inspired by Ovid's Metamorphoses, Sasha Marianna Salzmann sends her protagonists into a marathon – in search of a new self which denies conservative concepts of identity.
