DATSCHE is a charming and quirky summer tale of friendships across garden fences and borders. The film follows young actor Valentine Hermann who leaves New York to spend the summer in his recently deceased grandfather’s garden allotment house in East Germany. Upon arrival, he meets Adam, an Ethiopian man who has been hiding in the datsche to avoid deportation. Together, they form a friendship and combat the anger of a xenophobic gardening neighbor.
