The Inheritance

"I was always alone. With my mother. My mother was always alone. With me. My mother lived for me and destroyed her life. But not mine. Someone else did that."

As a child, Wolf slept during the day and was awake at night. He was only allowed to leave their apartment if he put on a motorcycle helmet, because his mother claimed that he suffered from moonshine disease. When a doctor discovered her lie, she killed herself. Now, as an adult, Wolf lives in seclusion in his apartment, the walls of which are covered with puzzles. One day, a man appears, claiming to be his brother. Freddy has an enigmatic impact on Wolf, a man with no moral compass, and the two men grow closer. Once again, Wolf finds himself in a dangerous struggle for the truth of his own life.

• Raw, murky and turbulent
• An unsettling game of power and manipulation
