Daheim

A Film by Kai Wido Meyer

Synopsis

In a remote village, Father and Son are looking for a way out of their desperation. Mother is at work and there is no distraction around. Finally the son has an idea. Maybe a suicide will bring salvation, or an attempted suicide, maybe?
But the father’s reaction to this idea is disappointing. He is used to mother making the decisions. The relationship between father and son is so silent that it takes a while until there is a slight proximity of connection. Maybe they have more in common than they thought.
And this time there is no stopping. This is a revolution. A peaceful, quiet revolution.
