Looking for his hammer, Patrick finds a journey of self-discovery.

"Its exploration of original, yet universal themes and its arresting and captivating imagery will be both poetic and thrilling storytelling."
(THE JURY AT CONNEXT WORK IN PROGRESS)


Patrick is the handyman on his father's naturist campsite. The remaining time he dedicates to his hobby, designing and creating furniture. When Patrick loses his campsite hammer, his quest to retrieve it takes him to the farthest corners of the camping grounds. Sure enough, when Patrick's father passes away, Patrick's quest turns existential. Patrick's safety bubble pops and everything he took for granted, changes. Is he mourning because of his father? Or is he thinking mostly about his lost hammer? In the meantime, the resident campers are beginning to question Patrick's leadership abilities, fearing for the survival of their beloved sanctuary.
