First showing in Spain

Nathalie Adler is on a mission in Sicily for the European Union, organizing the upcoming visit of a migrant camp by Macron and Merkel. Their presence has great symbolic value, demonstrating that everything is under control. But who is still prepared to believe in this European family on the verge of a nervous breakdown? Definitely not Albert, Nathalie’s son, who is an activist with a non-profit and turns up out of the blue, years after breaking off all contact with his mother. A hot-headed idealist working for the NGO World Citizen, Albert bitterly resents the mother who abandoned him and his father when he was a child, and is incensed that she is a lesbian. German special advisor Ute, Nathalie’s sometime girlfriend, proves more than a match for Albert’s jibes and insinuations. The reunion of Nathalie and Albert will prove more explosive than the diplomatic mission…
