Berlin 2017 – Winner – Best Actor for Georg Friedrich
Berlin-based engineer Michael must travel to Norway for his father's funeral. His sister is unwilling to go, and Michael is left alone with his 14-year-old son Luis, with whom he has always had minimal contact. Michael tries to bond with Luis while exploring the remote region of northern Norway for a few days. But their first trip together is much more difficult than expected. Daily interaction is unfamiliar territory to both, and Luis obviously holds a grudge because of his father's negligence. But during these longest days of summer, Michael is determined to break a bittersweet father-son pattern.
A touching father-son drama from the director of GOLD, IN THE SHADOWS and VACATION.
