Synopsis

German gay-themed drama. Jannis Niewöhner stars in the title role, as a young man caring for his dying father (André Hennicke) whilst running the family farm. Tension and distance has characterised the two men's relationship ever since Jonathan's mother died when he was a boy, with his dad refusing to open up on the subject. However, Jonathan finds out more than he expected about his father's past when his former lover Ron (Thomas Sarbacher) appears at their home to say his final goodbyes. This sends the 18-year-old on a journey to uncover his family's complicated and secretive history as he tries to understand more about his father's life and come to terms with his death.
