MILLIONS (MILLIONEN)

MILLIONS

Do you play the lotto? If so, why? What do you hope to get out of it? Would you know what to do with 22 million? Take the money? Who would you tell about it, who wouldn’t you tell about it? Would you share? If so, with whom and how much? Why that much and not more? How would you explain the new car or the extra vacation to your friends, neighbors or colleagues? Would you quit your job, move to a place where nobody knows who you are? How would you look back at your life? Plaintively, with pride, with taunt? Would you congratulate someone who has just won 22 million in the lottery?

Torsten (in his late 30s), wasn’t looking for anything. He just bought the lottery ticket to keep the peace with his lottery-enthusiastic co-workers. Eventually, he’s forced to think about what to do with such a big win when his ticket hits the jackpot. And he soon realizes that he is the only one with no answer to that question. His wife Susanne already knows what to do with their newfound wealth. His son Lutz also makes plans. The shock wave of this “lottobomb” tears Torsten’s orderly world apart and leaves him with the question of who he really is.
