After yet another violent feud, a family’s mother – a former pianist who never truly matured – lands in the hospital, and her oldest and fieriest daughter Margaret lands before the court, which orders her to come no closer than 100 meters from the family home. The youngest daughter, who bears the whole situation the hardest, draws a line precisely 100 meters from the house, where she regularly meets her sister. But the question remains: what will happen once the injunction ends? Will this family of impassioned women be able to calm down in time and begin to love each other again?

Ursula Meier

This French-Swiss filmmaker studied film in Belgium. She tied into her debut Home (2012), shown at Cannes, with the successful Sister (2012), which won the Special Silver Bear award at the Berlinale. Meier returned to the Berlin competition this year with another drama about damaged family relationships, The Line, which she wrote together with the actress playing Margaret, Stéphanie Blanchoud.
