Gripping drama about abuse at a soccer club.

It’s been years since Frank last returned to the village where he grew up, but he sets off with his small family to attend his mother’s funeral. His wife and his son Tim immediately feel at home in the cottage they’ve inherited from Tim’s grandmother, and they want to spend the summer in the countryside. Tim makes friends at the local soccer club. But Frank is haunted by demons from his childhood. A person everybody knows has revived terrible memories and is now entering the life of his son.

Felicitas Korn majored in documentary film and television journalism at the University of Television and Film Munich (HFF) and spent a semester at the Northern School of Film and Television in Leeds, England, in 1997. While a student, she was a presenter at the Hofer Filmtage, an assistant director, and a production manager.

Korn is the author and director of the music video SUPERGIRL by the band Reamonn, which topped the charts in 2000, as well as the multiple award-winning short film NASS and the award-winning erotic drama BREAKING THE SURFACE, which received international recognition due to its “radical and consequential nature”.
