Inhalt

The White Sound

Katja is tired of getting her schizophrenic brother out of serious trouble. But Lukas unwaveringly follows his self-destructive way of living. He is obsessed with the thought that the whole world is against him. Katja′s last and ultimate try to bring Lukas back to his senses ends with him jumping into a river.

Just in time, a hobo appears and saves his life. At the vagrant′s side, Lukas is introduced to a whole new life, far away from the usual standard of today′s society. These people do not expect him to behave in a "normal" way. They accept him as he is and wants to be. He travels south with them, but tension rises as Lukas often endangers the group with this aggressive behavior. Finally, the situation escalates. Lukas dives into the sea and starts to swim. He is already very far out, before all sight of him is lost. He will never again endanger or hurt anyone ...
The White Sound deals sensitively with the effects of schizophrenia without presenting a "thesis play". Although the main characters have to fight serious problems, they do not despair. They take on the challenge, developing tricks to succeed and get through life.
