Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 10/2020

Struggling for a fresh start, a recently widowed father (Charly Hübner) takes up the long-vacant position as building manager in a rundown housing complex. Soon after moving in, his teenage son Juri (Tristan Göbel) starts to sense something vicious permeating their new home: a sinister force that has taken possession of the decrepit panel walls, secretly feeding on the misery of the block’s inhab- itants. To fight it, Juri needs to unite his neighbors in a desperate revolt against the house itself – even if that means confronting the stoic regime of his father, who has already fallen deep under the building’s corrosive spell.
