On his tenth birthday Alexander promises his grandmother never to fall in love in order to not share his father’s fate. Every Sunday, Alexander visits his father, who has retreated to
live in the Vienna subway system. As a young adult Alexander also moves underground during daytime and takes a job in a small lost-and-found office, where he meets the beautiful and vivacious Caro in her small subway hatter store. Though Alexander had managed to successfully resist love before, his self-imposed oath comes to a sudden end that will start a bittersweet journey during which he changes summer into winter and ultimately understands that love is not about winning but taking the risk.
