One day his sister turns up unexpectedly with her small son Levi, seeking refuge from her abusive boyfriend; she has nowhere else to turn. So Andi suddenly finds himself in the role of uncle, the squat is transformed into an alternative kindergarten, and the estranged pair become the siblings they once were.


Synopsis

Andi shares a deserted building in Vienna with a group of fellow-squatters he considers his family. One day his sister turns up unexpectedly with her small son Levi, seeking refuge from her abusive boyfriend; she has nowhere else to turn. So Andi suddenly finds himself in the role of uncle, the inhospitable squat is transformed into a kindergarten, and its inhabitants become Levi’s friends, whose company the little boy much prefers to his time at the real nursery. The apparent calm gives the adult siblings time to touch upon wounds from the past and perhaps the opportunity to try to heal them… A film whose main roles are played not only by actors, but also by the building itself, whose walls have a lot to say.
