After the death of his parents, the young sanitary engineer Patrick "Sigi" Signer no longer knows exactly what to do with his life. The wages are not enough, women ignore him and his only social contacts are his colleagues at work. He finds a fatherly substitute figure in dodgy Walter, for whom he carries out minor repairs after work. When he meets Hannah, he tries everything to please her. He pretends to be a copywriter and at first everything seems to work well. Hans Kaufmann's feature film debut is characterized by precise observation and emotional sensitivity. A reduced film imagery directs our eye to the essential.
Director's Biography:Born in 1991 in Zurich and raised there. Attended the Rudolf Steiner School. 2014 Diploma at the ZHdK (Zurich University of the Arts). Since 2010, freelance film director of commercials and feature films.
