VOLUNTARY YEAR, A (FREIWILLIGE JAHR, DAS)

VOLUNTARY YEAR, A
© Patrick Orth/WDR

Jette is on her way to the airport to start a voluntary social year in Central America. Her father Urs wants her to lead a free, self-determined life and not to get stuck in the West German province like he did. But Jette is torn between her high school sweetheart Mario and her father’s expectations. She can no longer avoid the question of what she wants herself. A film about the impossibility of forcing happiness.
