First love affects the rest of our lives. We do not forget it. Sometimes it lasted longer, sometimes shorter, or every now and then the first love lasts even today. We associate strong memories with it. It is a unique fulfillment of a strong desire that we never felt before. Unburdened with negative experiences. To investigate this feeling, I accompanied Ronja and Lars during their first love and everything related to it. Situations and feelings I got to know before them. They experience the effort, the happiness, get to know distance and closeness and face decisions of a different kind. A first love that is exciting, carefree and strong like any other, yet so different and unique. The work was a chance to get a glimpse of a first love, even if it wasn't my own. It reminds us of that feeling of first love and the intimacy and naivety and leaves us with the memory of our own.
