THINGS I DON'T GET
© Sarah Beckhoff/Filmuniversität Babelsberg

In a small town on the edge of the Ruhr Valley, a boy from a farm is looking for his place in the world. Torn between the city and the country, between his best friend and his older brother, between the present and tradition, Johannes longs for recognition and adventure.
