In HEIMAT 2, the second season of the HEIMAT TRILOGY series originally titled „DIE ZWEITE HEIMAT“, we travel back to 1960 and capture the story of Maria’s son Hermann, who turns his back on his small village and goes to Munich to follow his dream and study music, finding one thing in particular: love and friendship.

HEIMAT 2 is a series that brilliantly captures the decade of cultural, social and political changes in a contemporary way. Over 25 hours long in total, director Edgar Reitz takes us on a journey back in time to the bohemian era of musicians, filmmakers and writers. He was awarded the special „Golden Lion“ prize in Venice for this monumental achievement and is still considered a pioneer of serial storytelling.
