The 19year old Roman Kogler has the opportunity to be prematurely released from a young juveniles’ facility. Chances, however, are not in his favour. A lonely and reserved character, without a family, it will be hard for him to be reintegrated back into society. As a prisoner he works in a funeral office, and it is this contact with death that will be catalytic in finding his way back to life. Karl Markovics (scriptwriter and director) was awarded for his debut at the famous Directors’ Fortnight at the 64th Cannes Festival 2011.

Starring: Thomas Schubert, Georg Friedrich, Gerhard Liebmann, Karin Lischka.

The film received 26 international awards and the Austrian Film Award 2012 in six categories.
