The awakening of Motti Wolkenbruch
Based on the novel of the same name by Thomas Meyer.
Until now, Motti Wolkenbruch has always dutifully done what his orthodox Jewish mother told him to do. When his mother wants to marry him off and invites all kinds of young women, Motti deviates from the traditional path. He falls in love with the beautiful gentile Laura. His mother is furious. Love for a shiksa is not in Motti's life plan. Now Motti bravely begins his whimsical journey to self-determination.
