Synopsis

Growing up is hard for teenagers and possibly even harder for their parents. After Jason (2020 European Shooting Star Jonas Dassler, The Silent Revolution, The Golden Glove) suffers a serious skating accident, his relationship with his mother Marlene (Anke Engelke, Deutschland 83) is put to the test. While Jason continues to feel invincible, Marlene wants to protect him more than ever.

When Marlene decides to drive Jason across Germany to a special clinic in Switzerland for rehab, a challenging journey full of obstacles begins. While she has a clear route in mind, Jason does everything he can to convince his mother that life is mostly about detours.

In her feature film debut, Lena Stahl carefully navigates the trade-offs between protection and freedom, and the pitfalls of sacrificing one for the other. With amazing chemistry between the two main actors, mother and son struggle for closeness and distance, freedom and overcoming the past in this outstanding road movie.
