Camouflage

A Film by Stephan Kämpf
and Andreas Kessler

Synopsis

During a military exercise in the woods, two soldiers cover each other’s faces in camouflage paint. In such a delicate situation, in which every trembling of the finger is perceivable, Max tries to find out the truth about Christian. He fears to become a target of the group himself, if his best friend actually turns out to be gay. As Max feels more and more pressured by his surrounding, he pushes Christian to confess.
