Dir. Marc Rothemund, colour, 106 min, Germany 2016/2017

Almost 30 years old, Lenny takes life pretty lightly. He’s quit medical school, he’s still living in his parents’ villa and he likes to spend his nights in fancy nightclubs. But parental patience tends to have an expiration date. When his father is finally fed up with his antics and decides to kick him out and cut off all financial support, Lenny is faced with an unusual challenge: either he spends time with chronically ill teenager David, who lives with his single working class mother – or he will never be allowed to return to his old lifestyle.  Maybe, Lenny’s father hopes, the experience would help him realize what it is he wants from life. And indeed: young and zealous David manages to squeeze his way into Lenny’s heart and the both develop a brotherly bond. Lenny has found his purpose: the wellbeing of his protégé. But David’s condition turns out to be more serious than expected…
