Synopsis (momentan nur in Englisch verfügbar)
Farell is a 48-year-old man sailing back because he wants to find out if his mother is still alive, he is back since on the ocean nobody trusts him anymore. He is back to see, if it is possible to ask his mother for forgiveness. Perhaps that way he will finally be able to free himself from something that doesn’t let his head rest. Before leaving, he used to share the bed with his mother at night. As soon as he got home Farell used to pull down his pants and do it without even asking. Throughout the years, he worked in different places, on different ships; he drank until he fainted without caring at all where he was. And now he comes back to his home village and arrives at his mother’s house. However, she doesn’t talk anymore. Farell watches her without being seen; he spies on her until the coldness penetrates him and then decides to go in. There he also gets to know a new relative.
