Christmas - a feast of love, harmony and contemplation. For four teenagers from Hamburg, Christmas Eve takes a completely different turn. Unable to handle her parents' conflict, Alex lands in an adolescent psychiatric emergency unit where she meets Lara, Fedja and Timo. Under the care of the unorthodox psychiatrist Dr Wolff (Clemens Schick), the emotionally troubled teens must learn to live with each other. Paula Beer, Moritz Leu and 'European Shooting Stars' Jella Haase and Jannis Niewöhner represent Germany's next generation of acting talents in this award-winning film, which is the first feature film of director Theresa von Eltz. 4 Kings follows the teenagers as they experience their most vulnerable and at times hilarious moments together.

Clemens Schick and Jella Haase are guests of the Film Fest.

QUOTES FROM CRITICS:
"...neither obnoxiously comic nor ostentatiously profound, it has a fine sense for the inherent humour of serious issues. A stroke of cinematic luck." Axel Timo Purr, Artechock
