the bereaved
a short film by Alexander Pfeuffer
SYNOPSIS:
Suddenly he was gone. Dead.
All that is left are deep conflicts,
18-year-old Paul had with his late father.
Issues that he cannot solve anymore,
now that he is dead. And then there is
Lina, Paul’s little sister, whom
he should take care of now.
He ‘d rather have someone to look after
him. Paul refuses to meet this
responsibility. He flees from the small
apartment, strives through Berlin and
meets an elderly man, Dresen.
An accomplished man, as it seems.
Someone who might be able to take
care of him. So Paul decides to join him.
They spend the night together.
Little by little old wounds open up – on
both sides. Dresen happens to have lost
someone, too. At a dilapidated industrial
site in the outskirts, their secret
mourning turns into rage.
The situation is about to escalate...
„’The Bereaved’ looks deeply
into a teenager’s desperate
search for consolation, into his
grief and his fury.
A haunting film about the
battle for a father.“
Annette Hess, screenwriter

INHALT:
Auf einmal war er weg. Tot. Geblieben
sind nur die Konflikte, die der 18-jährige
Paul mit seinem Vater nicht mehr klären
konnte. Und Lina, seine kleine
Schwester, um die er sich jetzt nun
kümmern soll. Dabei hätte er selbst
gerne jemanden, der für ihn da ist.
Paul will sich der Verantwortung nicht
stellen. Er flieht aus der Enge der
Wohnung, streunt durch Berlin und
begegnet dem alten Dresen. Einem
gemachten Mann, wie’s scheint. Und
einer, der Paul jetzt auffangen könnte.
Die beiden verbringen die Nacht
miteinander. Nach und nach brechen
alte Wunden auf - beiderseits. Denn auch
Dresen hat jemanden verloren.
Auf einem Industriegelände am
Rande der Stadt kippt die Trauer der
beiden schließlich um in Wut.
Die Situation droht zu eskalieren...
