In Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, the coitus of direct blood relatives is forbidden. Siblings face up to two years of imprisonment. But consensual incest is a victimless crime, so a ban is difficult to legitimize legally. Because if we condemn consensual adult incest solely on the grounds of offspring health, we would equally have to do so with all other non-related risk patients.
After a deeper examination of the issue, we are now firmly in favor of decriminalizing consensual incest. Freedom and self-determination are central goods of our society; that's what we stand for. Our film is neither intended to shock nor impose an opinion. We want to tell a touching story: the audience should try to comprehend our characters and their struggles – showcase compassion and support, feel their love and fear. It is a moral dilemma challenging our society's established cannons of tolerance. Because 'Love is Love' – right?
