The film deals with the sabbatical “Rumspringa” of a Amish before returning to their village and living according to the canons of this sui generis community, little known but full of interesting ideas.

Rumspringa – Jacob’s journey
Watch the trailer in the original language and read the plot of the film on Netflix
Jacob is a young man from the Amish community in Ohio, United States. After school, Jacob has the right to “rumspringa” and his parents decide to send him to the other side of the world to know his origins.
The Amish communities, in fact, were born in German-speaking Switzerland and then transplanted to the States.
Jacob chooses Berlin for his initiation into the alternative world. During the sabbatical year, unlike the strict Amish rules, he will be able to dress in a modern way, drink alcohol, meet other people outside his community and have the most disparate experiences.
Among these experiences, of course, love is also contemplated, which Jacob will inevitably end up discovering during his long stay in Berlin.
And precisely this, among other things, the goal of Rumspringa for the Amish, to make young people know, in a carefree and libertine way, what the world outside their community is and to make them decide in an informed way if they are willing to give it up, returning to the tranquility of the life of their community.
Ultimately, rumspringa is a sort of “Erasmus project of life”.
What will Jacob do after getting to know Berlin, a different world, new friendships and above all love?
