Max Riemelt, the super sexy star of the hit series Sense8, and hottie Hanno Koffler (Summer Storm, Coming In) co-star as gay lovers in this wildly popular romantic drama. Free Fall has been called the German Brokeback Mountain for its portrayal of forbidden love between two police cadets – as Marc (Koffler) and Kay (Riemelt) embark on an unexpected life-changing affair.
With a promising law enforcement career and a child on the way, Marc’s life is all going according to plan until he meets the free spirited Kay. They start jogging together, bringing a breath of fresh air into Marc’s life – and, for the first time, he develops feelings for a man. Torn between the life he knows so well and the exhilaration of this new adventure, his life rapidly spins out of control. In this state of free fall, it seems Marc cannot make anyone happy anymore. Least of all himself.
