Valentin returns to the scene of his childhood: an old hotel in the Swiss mountains, which has long been sold and is about to be demolished. As he wanders through the empty building, his memories fill the hotel with life, as if their very transience had brought forth an inner melody. The narrative structure of Off Season resembles a game of billiards: one ball glances off another, setting it in motion and at the same time altering its own course. One episode triggers another, until their paths cross or they merge, creating a kaleidoscope of memories interspersed by what is ostensibly the present. About this movie it has been said that "If Stanley Kubrick set nightmares in the Overlook Hotel, Schmid has only the happiest magical memories to animate his grand hotel nestled in the Swiss Alpes. Off Season is an unabashed cinematic circus populated by a Fellini-like cast of caricatures”.
