Schweizer Helden

SCHWEIZER HELDEN

Sabine is slightly down on her luck. Her kids are on vacation, her husband has left her, and things aren‘t going very well at work. Over Christmas, she decides to volunteer at a refugee camp, preparing a play with the residents in time for New Year‘s. While Sabine concentrates on directing the group, the asylum seekers have other problems to deal with: staying in the country, love, family, and, of course, the German language. Will they be ready for the curtain call?

2014: SCHWEIZER HELDEN  Feature film by Peter Luisi with Esther Gemsch, Karim Rohama, Komi Mizrajim Togbonou, Elvis Clausen, Newroz Baz, Klaus Wildbolz.

Audience award – Film Festival Locarno 2014
