When Ingeborg Bachmann and Max Frisch meet for the first time in Paris in the summer of 1958, they are already international celebrities of the literary world. Though still young, Ingeborg Bachmann is at the peak of her career when she meets the famous playwright Max Frisch. Their love is passionate, but professional and personal friction begins to disrupt the harmony. When Ingeborg is struggling, her friends are there to help, including Hans Werner Henze and the young Adolf Opel, a Viennese journalist and man of literature. They travel to the desert together. On this journey she finds a way back to herself and – above all – to her writing. The film premiered in competition at the 2023 Berlinale.

“Ingeborg Bachmann has long been one of my favourite authors. As a young woman, I even wrote poems myself – but I never showed them to anyone, and I soon stopped. Later, I frequently referenced Bachmann in my films, long before I knew I would ever address her life and work directly in this way.” (M. von Trotta)
