MOON LANDING (MONDLANDUNG)

MOON LANDING
Scene from MOON LANDING

Two brothers from a third-generation German family in Kazakhstan are resettled in Germany where they have to deal with a totally foreign new environment.

To the Kaefer family, their resettlement in Germany is like a mission to the moon, outcome uncertain. New language, new way of life. The question is: will they be able to adapt to this “better” life? Will they ever feel at home or will they remain strangers in a strange land?

Whereas Yuri, the older of the brothers, really wants to begin a new life and leave the past, his younger brother Dimitri drifts into a life of crime. The conflicts between the brothers escalates until the time comes when they both have to decide which side they’re on.
