Susanne Matthiessen

Diese eine Liebe die wird nie zu ende gehn

Sylt - deserted and empty of people. Susanne Matthiessen is overwhelmed when she experiences her home island in lockdown for the first time without tourists. Suddenly, it is nature again that determines the rhythm of life on the island, and the familiar, village-like togetherness of times past comes to life once more. Susanne feels transported back to her childhood. While she explores the lonely island together with her friend, her "place of longing" remains a restricted area for hundreds of thousands of other Germans.
With a great deal of humor and clever observation, Matthiessen tells of a very German island and its inhabitants, who to this day show that they are descended from beachcombers and whalers.
