GODLESS YOUTH (JUGEND OHNE GOTT)

GODLESS YOUTH
© 2017 Constantin Film Verleih/die film/Marc Reimann

In a not-too-distant future, integration serves to protect the elite and isolate the weak, the cities are hellholes and the countryside holds the fairytale promise of a better life. During the annual graduates’ assessment camp a young school girl is found in the woods. Known for his upstanding morals, a teacher breaks with his own values on a quest for the truth – and is increasingly entangled in a net of his own lies. Suddenly someone confesses to a murder that they couldn‘t have committed, and the fragile cohesion of a youthful elite society is threatened to destroy itself.
