Synopsis

The lives of Tubbie, Tim, Jojo, Birdie, and Marie took an unexpected twist, as if their summer vacation never ended. The five youths are a tightknit group of friends, wandering around like stray dogs in an anonymous city that pays them no heed, experiencing moments of unexpected bliss in the suffocating heat of an endless summer. But soon this game of hide-and-seek with reality, this escape from the world will start revealing its consequences, undermining the group’s unity.

Director statement

“We Are Fine does not explain why this group exists. It seemed more fascinating to me to observe and watch what happens because of its existence. What does this group constellation do to each and every one of them? What changes do they go through? How do they treat each other, how far can they go and at what moment does it all fall apart?”
