a film by Ludwig Wüst

Hans lives in a small town near Vienna.
Profession: taxi driver. Married. One son.

Hans has a secret. It will tear his family apart.

There is only one person he can return to: a woman from the past.

At first, the film shows a petty bourgeois life: family stress during the preparation of a birthday, invited guests coming too early, the beginning of the party.

Only the man celebrating his 50th jubilee does not appear. He leaves his car and strolls through the forest.

When he eventually comes back home, there is nothing more to say.
So he runs away. To save, what is left.

Director's statement

"KOMA indicates the main character's condition: Hans is a taxi driver, but you never see him driving a client, it's his birthday, but he doesn't participate in the party. He wants to kill himself, which doesn't work either. He has to awake from his coma and go through differents hells to get where he actually belongs."
