Having lost his butcher’s shop, 65 year old Gerhard Böhm has been separated from wife and child, now residing in an apartment on the outskirts of Prenzlau, Germany. Devoting himself to alcoholism, Böhm does not notice that his addiction has already deprived him of large amounts of his remembrance of the past. But this past is about to catch up with him, while alcoholic dementia torments him with hallucinations. Horrible scream from the adjacent flat, paranoia and an ominous Pole. Both his son Peter and Böhm himself take up the search for the shocking voids in his mind.
After going bankrupt, Gerhard himself has engaged with criminality. To provide his polish acquaintance with room for prostitution involving illegally brought in girls, he has rented two apartments. After separating from his wife, he has himself moved into one of them and could not resist the temptation to take his bitterness out one of the girls.
When Gerhard is finally able to put the pieces together, he dies a drunkard’s death, while Peter discovers his father’s dark secrets and abandons him.


Born and raised in Göttingen, Steffen Alberding took a strong interest in both theater and film already in his school days. Ten years as a member of a prize-winning amateur drama group, over 15 short and experimental films and various internships within film and TV-industry at last earned him a matriculation at Baden-Württemberg film academy, where he chose directing as his major subject. As of October, Steffen Alberding will specialise in advertising film, yet still aspiring to process his dark way of perception in fictional works.
