Anke is disappointed. After her last day of work in a parish office in the Black Forest, she was looking forward to a summer holiday together with her children on the Baltic coast, a place where they lived as a young family and where Anke spent her best years. But her son Max, who lives in Hong Kong, cancels at short notice because the pro-democracy protests in the city have brought life there to a standstill. In the emptiness of her retirement, alone between four walls, Anke decides to fly to Hong Kong to see her son. While Max is away on a business trip, she takes up residence in his flat and cautiously begins to navigate this mysterious new world.

He has written and directed two short films, ‘Wanderdrachen’ (2016) and ‘One and Many’ (2017), both of which screened at international festivals such as Curta Cinema in Rio de Janeiro and Pacific Meridian. ‘Wood and Water’ is his debut feature film.
