An awarded workaholic architect Sebastian Färber (Peter Lohmeyer) is invited to the island of Vineta in the Baltic Sea and told about plans to build an ultra-safe community full of security cameras and other supervising equipment. He deems the plans totalitarian and accepts the job of creating an alternative, more open and modern plan for the future community and works day and night to complete his work. After some tragic events regarding the few other people on the island, Färber gets suspicious about the project and finds out the truth behind his assignment – things aren't what he thought they were.

Even though it may sound like a techno-thriller, the focus of Vineta is on personal relationships and the importance of not hiding your weakness from your loved ones. The story advances at a somewhat peaceful pace, frequently paused by fades to bright red or blue. The shots of a running flock of flamingos at the beginning and the end look very nice and have a strong connection to the theme of the film. Personally I didn't find the story absorbing enough to make the movie a great one, but Vineta is still worth watching if you like quiet, personal dramas.
