the lost emperor

the idea very briefly

When a celebrated photographer is trapped in his home in a snow storm, he must overcome his self-centered self to save his wife's life.

 

and a little longer

Iceland, lonely winter. Before the diabetic photographer Linus Vanhöfen loses his sight, he would like to erect a monument: his own biography. But since the first encounter with the young ghostwriter Jonas, Linus' whims have stood in the way of a peaceful collaboration that not even his wife Trudi can save the situation. Especially not when an approaching storm separates them and buries them alive under snow. A fight against nature and for love begins ...

filling the shoes

the idea a little longer

Germany in the post-war period. 11-year-old Paul is still longingly waiting for his father to return. His mother, on the other hand, has given up hope and wants to build a new family with Sam, an African-American occupation soldier. That goes too far for Paul, who grew up in Nazi Germany. Can Paul accept the former enemy as the new father in his life?

holy shit

the idea without any blasphemy

Hendrik lives between two worlds. On the one hand he is very religious and an obedient Christian, on the other hand he is quite in love with Marlene - a young woman who does not believe in God. When Jesus himself interferes, the lovers' problems seem solved.

But instead of organizing his life, the Son of God drives Hendrik further into chaos and a painful crisis of faith. And peace be upon him ...
