Katharina von Arx and Freddy Drilhon have the same bold vision in the 1950s: Both wish, radically, to be free to arrange their own lives. On adventurous journeys in the South Seas, they find passionate love and gain international fame through their work. Having settled in a medieval ruin in Romainmôtier, Canton Vaud, their relationship is put to a dramatic test. Their love and their lives are at stake.

After his book “Verliebte Feinde” and the screenplay for the film with the same title, Wilfried Meichtry presents another fascinating love story. In numerous conversations, the elder Katharina von Arx tells him about her extraordinary life and provides him access to her huge archive.

Featuring Sabine Timoteo, winner of three Swiss Film Awards, and Christophe Sermet, Swiss actor currently based in Belgium.
