„0816“ is a fictional cross media web series about a group of youngsters spending their summer holidays in their local village somewhere in Brandenburg. Where unspoken feelings turn to secrets and injuries, the relationships within the group evolve, tangle and eventually dissolve as the characters grow up. Beneath the cloudy weather, the summer is haunted by the sense of an upcoming storm, a tragedy about to raze the last remains of their childhoods – changing the course of their stories forever.
