Tore is a “warrior for Jesus”, one of a group of religious punks in Hamburg. At a motorway service station he meets Benno, whose car has broken down. Tore gets it going again – with prayers to Jesus, proving again to himself the power of his belief. Later on, he accepts Benno’s invitation to move in with him and his family. While Tore helps where he can, he is increasingly the target for Benno’s sadistic tendencies. The less Tore defends himself, the more the attacks increase. When will the limits of Tore’s belief be reached or exceeded? Screening on 28.09. in attendance of: Katrin Gebbe (Director), Verena Gräfe-Höft (Producer), Julius Feldmeier, Sascha Alexander Gersak, Annika Kuhl, Gro Swantje Kohlhof (Cast)
