On the coastline of Windholm one morning 15 years ago the ocean just disappeared. Since then the emptiness has been raising questions and anxiety. The cause of the phenomenon remains unclear. With a new theory at hand the physicist Micha (28) is one of many young scientists who is trying to get his hands on to one of his university's rare scholarships to explore the phenomena. After the many years of work he has put into the project he must once again see how a bold idea ends at the doors of the antiquated establishment - he receives a rejection. At the same time Jana (31), daughter of the institute's boss and Micha's former colleague on the project, resurfaces at the university. This doesn't make the situation any easier for Micha. A year ago she left him and the project and ran off to Portugal. Jana has now returned to put a definite end to her scientific career - but there is something else: Jana has to clarify something with Micha.

The fence on the coastline was actually built by the production design department to a length of 30 meters. Most of close ups and middle length shots were shot in front of this real fence, while in wide shots it was extended digitally. Every six hours the fence had to be dismounted because of the incoming flood. See more »
"We Are the Tide": Peter Pan Metaphysically Reimagined
What an eerie take on the timeless J.M. Barrie classic we have in the German mind-messer "We Are the Tide". Never has Neverland been represented more seductively, nor more ominously, then it is here.
Writer Nadine Gottmann's tale of a group of children seemingly taken away by the sea never to be seen again is a supernatural mystery chock full of sadness, symbolism and self-awakening. Director Sebastian Hilger, Cinematographer Simon Vu, Leonard Petersen's moody music and the wizardry of a visual effects team led by Peter Lames combine to create a film as mesmerizing to behold as it is nearly impossible to explain.
In the end, it appears reasonable to surmise that "We Are the Tide" presents to us the age old question: If you could live forever would you do it?
Well. Would you?
