New Directors Competition
The serious accident of her daredevil son Jason is a turning point in the life of photographer Marlene. When it becomes clear how severe Jason’s injuries are, only a special rehab in Switzerland can help. Marlene decides to drive her son herself all the way from Berlin across Germany. While she has a clear route in mind, Jason does everything he can to convince his mother that life takes place mostly on detours. Mother and son struggle for closeness and distance, disappointing their respective expectations and inevitably ending up in old conflicts.
