Der Ausflug

A Film by Stefan Najib

Synopsis

Martin is a teacher at a local high school. He thinks of himself as a good educator, but his own son begins to rebel against him. One day both drive to school together and get into a bad row over Bastian going on a camping vacation with his buddies. Soon after, Bastian’s classmate Tom starts to shoot people in their school. Martin can stop the killing by volunteering to drive an escape car for Tom.
During the escape, a harsh psychological duel begins between the teacher and the crazed student.
