About the film: In 1988, inseparable 17-year-old twins Doreen and Isabel Zimmermann travel from their East German town of Saxony to Hungary's Lake Balaton to train for an upcoming rowing competition. When they miss a connecting bus and impetuously accept a ride from West German teen Arne and his mates, the resulting attraction between Doreen and Arne threatens the girls' family bond and competitive status. For the first time, the sisters don't share everything and need to take the most momentous decision of their lives.

Westwind received the distinction "Especially Valuable" from the German Film Quality Assessment Board (FBW), and the Audience Favorite Award at Film|Neu 2012.
