Logline

A wonderful tragicomedy about a man who finds the future while searching for his past.

In this sequel to ENDLICH WITWER, which premiered at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN 2018, widower Georg Weiser seeks to heal old wounds and make some of his lifelong dreams come true. He drives his motor home to the disused farm where his former friends Jürgen and Petra live. Weiser wants to reach out to the two after nearly three decades have passed, but it turns out that many of the wounds they inflicted on each other back then have not yet healed. Can they perhaps make up for what they once missed out on? An attack on industrialist Ludwig Kornhalter, for example, whose chemical plants are still polluting the environment? And could there be a chance after all for the unrequited love that Weiser once felt, and still feels, for Petra?
