Focus on German cinema

In collaboration with the Goethe Institut - Montreal

It’s Christmas, the time of peace and family gatherings. Not so for four teenage girls and boys, Lara, Alexandra, Timo and Fedja, nor for Dr. Wolf, whose charges they are in an adolescent psychiatric treatment center. It transpires during the therapy sessions, painful for everyone concerned, that the conflicts which the youngsters face are rooted in their respective family histories. The Christmas celebrations at the center contain happy and unhappy surprises – yet, in spite of a bitter failure, there is hope.
