Synopsis
Bergig
is the story of a love that cannot be. Jan is married with two children. Mona is 15 years younger. And yet they have fallen in love with each other. In a Tyrolean mountain hut, far from their daily lives, Mona and Jan try to find out what it is that they feel for each other. Whether and how they can be together. But reality catches up with both of them. Jan’s family is important to him and he is afraid of giving it up for an affair that suddenly flares up. Mona doesn’t know to what extent she can trust her feelings, because she has often realised after a few months that she has deceived herself in love. But still they keep on going one step further. They try to find themselves, to sense and make sense of things. And at the end they have to make a decision.
