How to unlearn what we have learned. Constantin, Sarah and Gregor live in a polyamorous relationship. They unravel a religious childhood trauma from the past, discuss, wrestle, sing, listen and try to establish a new space of possibilities of how to live and love. Roof of Leaves is a intimate film debut questioning the relationship structures we have learned. By telling a story about three young people dealing with their own insecurities and thoughts it opens up a broader discussion for all of us. Is it possible to free ourselves from morals, religious concepts, powerstructures and relationships we have learned? And what can we find once we do so?
