Tragicomic journey through a coaching weekend for personal growth. About fatherhood, self-help books, role plays, a disastrous yelling exercise and our frenetic search for answers we may never find.
Receiving a coaching weekend for personal growth as a 'present' from your girlfriend, shortly before finding out you’ll unexpectedly become a father. The weekend couldn’t have started much more bewildering for Mathias. With a healthy aversion, he ends up in a villa among fretting Generation Z-ers and a megalomaniac coach. The weekend begins with some hot spiritual air, yet appears to lead to a breakthrough. Will he find his much-coveted answers, after all? When coach Anne disappears, Matthias sets himself up as a saviour to salvage his own mission.
