It's 34°C in Vienna and its inhabitants have reached the boiling point. The director, Seidl, shows a seemingly normal suburban neighborhood, where people are busy getting naked, not to have sex - although it does tend to take place - but to avoid the heat. The director interconnects the stories of 6 main characters who are all full to the brim with angst; coupled with a mild case of dementia in one's case. Mid-way into the film, the neighborhood transforms into a purgatory before reverting into its dull state as the rain clouds obscure the sun. Over the course of 2-3 days, the characters murder a dog, get raped, provoke a rape, indulge in orgies and curse at their neighbors; all-in-all, the ugliness of a few Viennese people, more or less, surfaces. Seidl, much like his predecessor Haneke, doesn't fall short in showing the dark side of a seemingly idyllic neighborhood in Vienna.
