A quirky dark comedy about eccentric people, small pleasures and big tools. Patrick lives on his father’s naturist campsite where he is the resident handyman. His daily routine is perfectly neat, as is his workshop. But nothing lasts forever. The loss of his favourite hammer brings confusion into his neatly ordered world, triggering a series of events that will prove there is a lot more to the camp’s residents than meets the eye. The film won the award for best direction at Karlovy Vary (Tim Mielants – Peaky Blinders, Legion) and features Jemaine Clement (Eagle vs Shark – ZFF 2007, What We Do in the Shadows, ZFF – 2014) in one of the roles.
