Don't Come Knocking

Don't Come Knocking

Deutschland / Frankreich 2004/2005, Spielfilm

Inhalt

While working on a new film, Western actor Spence is suddenly struck by the feeling that he might not have much longer to live. Driven by impulse, the aging womanizer jumps on his horse and rides off.
Planning to reconnect with all the people who played an important role in his life, Spence first visits his mother with whom he had no contact for 30 years. Chased by a detective hired by the film production company, he continues to travel across the USA. When Spence learns from two of his former love interests that he has fathered two children in his wild days – a boy and a girl – , the following encounters with his unknown offspring turn out very differently.
