Brief synopsis

August in Berlin is a riveting romance that spans one August evening in Berlin. An American woman, TALIA, Who is working in Berlin, has a chance meeting with a German scientist, MAX, at a coffee house. The eventful hours they spend together over the course of one night are the catalyst to an explosive revelation - they fall in love.

What begins as an antagonistic discussion of life, personal values, work and faith - becomes an unexpected compassion and understanding of each other. This attraction is profoundly complicated by their "real" lives - and by the censorship of a mutual friend who meets up with them in the course of the evening. What is more honorable - to follow one's heart or to be faithful to promises?
