Freier Fall is a 2013 German drama film directed by Stephan Lacant. It stars Hanno Koffler, Max Riemelt and Katharina Schüttler. The script was written by Lacant and Karsten Dahlem. The plot follows Marc, an expectant father and police officer who begins to develop feelings for a fellow policeman. The film was released on 23 May 2013.

A promising career with the police, a baby on the way Marcs life seems to be
right on track. Then he meets fellow policeman Kay and during their regular jogs
Marc experiences a never-before-felt sense of ease and effortlessness and
what it means to fall in love with another man.
Torn between his family and his new feelings for Kay, Marc sees his world careening more and more out of control. Suddenly, his life is in free fall and Marc realizes that
try as he may, he cant make everyone happy. Least of all, himself.

Free Fall is fresh, powerful cinema from Germany. The masterful performance
of actors Hanno Koffler (Summer Storm), Max Riemelt (Napola Before The Fall)
and Katharina Schüttler (The Promise) is an emotional tour de force, poignantly showing what ensues when lives are shattered and it seems impossible to
please the people you love.

Marc Borgman (Koffler), a young police officer, is on a training course for the riot control unit. He is not doing well at the police academy, being behind in his group athletically. Cocky and self-assured, Marc does not initially get along with his roommate at the academy, Kay Engel (Riemelt). They have a physical confrontation during exercise, but afterwards Marc apologizes for his aggressive behavior and they become friends. The two begin jogging together regularly, one time during which Kay engages Marc sexually. Confused and hesitant, Marc initially rebuffs him and keeps his distance, but then acknowledges his attraction by continuing to share intimate encounters with Kay.

Simultaneously, Bettina, Marc''s longtime girlfriend, is pregnant, and together they have just moved to a new house close to his parents. Complications arise when living a double life begins taking a psychological toll on Marc, as it becomes clear that acting on his feelings for another man could put his personal and professional life in jeopardy.
