When Will It Be Again Like It Never Was Before

by Sonja Heiss

A charming, funny and deeply moving film about growing up in a very special family. Based on an autobiographical best selling novel, produced by Komplizen Film

Growing up on the grounds of one of Germany's largest psychiatric hospitals is somehow - different. For Joachim, the director's youngest son, the patients are like family. They are also much nicer to him than his two older brothers, who drive him into fits of rage. His mother, painting watercolors, longs for Italian summer nights instead of constant German rain, while his father secretly, but not discreetly enough, goes his own way. But while Joachim slowly grows up, his world, not only through the loss of his first love, gets more and more cracks...
