A father (Michael Schech) tries valiantly to communicate with his autistic son Sebastian (Philipp Rankl) in this somber drama. In trying to give his special-needs child the things he needs, the father fails to provide for his own emotional needs. Barbara von Baur plays the resort guest who is interested in the detached father, with Lene Beyer as the maid. The majority of the action is seen through the eyes of the autistic child.
