Die Liebe der Kinder

Wallace Line

A woman and a man are meeting at a rest stop half-way between their hometowns. They have become acquainted in an internet chat room for single parents. There seems to be some deeper attraction going on between them right from the start. They soon decide to move in together. Everything seems to be perfect, even the age of their almost adult children. Then, suddenly, the two children fall in love with each other and do so with the serious straightforwardness of the very first love. Roles get swapped. She is afflicted by some kind of jealousy towards the two children and feels that her own relationship is somehow devaluated by this duplication.
