New York City in the final months of the Obama Presidency. While the writer Toby Darling feverishly awaits the premiere of his play, his partner Eric Glass spends time with his acquaintance Walter. His conversations with the 55-year-old take Eric back to a past which as a gay man in his early thirties he only knows from hearsay: the devastating AIDS epidemic that rocked the LGBTQ community at the beginning of the 1980s.

Rising sea levels, forests dying and even the two world wars were supposedly predicted by the woodland prophet Mühlhiasl, who apparently lived near Straubing during the 16th century and went down in legends of the Bavarian forest as a local Nostradamus. The dramatist, filmmaker and poet Herbert Achternbusch makes use of this legend to write about a society that is determined to preserve prosperity by any means necessary: the entire village lives off the local manufacturers’ fame for making ruby glass – however the master glassmaker who just passed away took the recipe to the grave with him. The cowherd Hias, who is hastily summoned for help, confirms the clairvoyant faculties attributed to him by arriving before he has even been called for. Spurred on by his gloomy forecasts on one hand and the tyrannical glassworks owner Goldfinger on the other, the entire village ends up in turmoil and is soon prepared to sacrifice the peace of its soul for wealth.

«Marienplatz» circulates around an actual incident in 2017: on Mai 19th at 3 a.m. in the morning a man drove his car to the Marienplatz in Munich, poured petrol over himself and set fire to himself. He died shortly afterwards in hospital and until today his identity and the circumstances remain unknown, but do give cause for wide speculation.

Marienplatz

Rat, whose real name is Nina, Paul and Alex are seventeen and bound together by a very close friendship: an inseparable trio. They spend every minute of their spare time together, challenge each other emotionally and intellectually and find an affinity and dependability that they often miss in their families. The moment the young trainee teacher Mr Spitzing walks through the door of their classroom, he immediately unsettles their stable world. All three of them feel drawn in different ways to this charismatic man. And Spitzing too soon shows an interest in this unlikely group.
