MY LIFE IN ORANGE

by Marcus H. Rosenmüller

synopsis

It’s 1980 and enlightenment comes to the back and beyond of Bavaria! Bhagwan disciple Amrita moves with her two children, 12-year-old Lili and nine-year-old Fabian, together with her equally esoteric roommates, from Berlin to the Bavarian backwoods. Primal scream therapy and wholemeal meet shooting club and more earthly horizons. While Amrita sings Indian mantras, sitting half naked on the Stone of Enlightenment, her arch-conservative neighbor and the village mayor, for whom the ‘weirdoes’ are, of course, also linked to left-wing terrorists the RAF, peers through the hedge, stunned. But when the yogis also set up a therapy center in the village, peaceful life goes out the window.
