Patrick is impulsive and unpredictable. After the suicide of his mother he wants to confront the man whom he sees as responsible for her death. Many years previously, his mother had an affair with a gigolo, a Dr. Borz, who dumped her after one night. As if on autopilot, Patrick circles ever closer to his presumed father, who has for years been living another life with wife, daughter, son and an enormous aquarium. Patrick gatecrashes Borz’ 60th birthday party – and makes it unambiguously clear that the guests are attending a party they will never forget. Screening on 02.10. in attendance of: Sven Halfar (Director, Scriptwriter, Producer), Rike Steyer (Producer), Carol Burandt v. Kameke (DoP), Tilman Strauß (Cast), Thomas Schendel (Cast), Niklas Kohrt (Cast), Tobias Kay (Cast), Hark Bohm (Cast)
