Germany, 2015, 31 Min

When Jana brings her new boyfriend Jonas home she has no inkling of the fact that Jonas and her mother are bound by a long-kept secret. Thus she sets in motion a psychodrama in which the safety of the secret constantly remains on a knife-edge.

Jana met her boyfriend Jonas in a chat room and resolves to bring him home. What she doesn't suspect is that Jonas is her half-brother. Jonas, in turn, is keen to find out why his mother Charlotte abandoned him when he was but a baby, before soon learning that she's reluctant to reveal what was hitherto a well-kept secret. Jonas' determination to regain his rightful place in the family sets off a game of cat and mouse between mother and son in an absorbing family drama that delves deep into the psychological depths of the human soul.
