Beaten by his father and rejected by his mother. Psychoanalyst Alice Miller made a name for herself as a children’s rights activist, yet her son grew up seeing a very different side to her. A road movie about a mother-son relationship shaped by emotional coldness: the legacy of war, persecution and trauma? Clues are provided by personal letters from Alice Miller, to which intensity is lent by the voice of Katharina Thalbach.
