Crowdfunding since 2010

A moving short film about addiction in a parental home through the eyes of a child.

While his father Rudi desperately tries to regain the lost family happiness at the slot machine, Niklas (11) is often left alone with his alcoholic mother Anna. When intoxicated, she is unpredictable: sometimes she treats Niklas lovingly and tenderly, sometimes she terrorizes him with fits of rage. Niklas is torn between his sense of duty to help his parents and his wish to escape his parental home.
