Filmfest 2014

German Age Rating

One thing is certain: 23-year-old Simon loves his parents Hans and Elli and his little sister Maja. He does everything in his power to help them cope with Hans, a once celebrated architect who has been suffering from schizophrenia and is becoming increasingly violent. It is Simon who now runs the household and takes care of Maja because Elli works long hours. When Simon meets Verena, he falls head over heels in love for the first time. But Simon also fears that he may inherit the illness one day too... Torn between his affection for Verena and his love for his increasingly unpredictable father, Simon maneuvers himself into a near-fatal situation and realizes that he cannot change his father’s life, he can only change his own....
