FEVER

Original Title: Fieber

Synopsis

Franziska (Eva Mattes), a renowned photographer, is on a journey to come to terms with her past. Along the way she’s haunted by memories of her youth and of her father’s (Martin Wuttke) strange behavior when he returned from his time in the french Légion Étrangère in North Africa. He was haunted by images of what he saw during the colonial wars, and was not able to deal with it when he returned home. Franziska is now ready to cope with her childhood memories, which she kept a secret for too long.
