Ferngesteuert

A Film by Hendrik Maximilian Schmitt

Synopsis

During therapy with a psychologist is the 18-year old Maik confronted with events of a disturbing night. His carefully built up front seems to crumble more and more, as he remembers. But as much as he wants to entrust himself to somebody – he simply can’t: his friend Thomas wants to prevent his involvement by all available means.
