Happy Burnout

Happy Burnout

Deutschland 2016/2017, Spielfilm

Inhalt

Old punk rocker Fussel has the world wrapped round his finger; women, life, the system – all handled with a quip and his ready charm. Work’s for others too. But then an internal audit at the unemployment office means his advisor is forced to act. A job’s out of the question, of course, but being declared unfit for work, that’s another thing. So Fussel is packed off to therapy, where he meets people genuinely burned out. He soon turns the place upside down, drives the therapist and nurse nuts, but he’s also a breath of fresh air for his fellow patients. The more Fussel gets to know them, the more he gets to know himself until it’s no longer clear who’s treating whom, who really needs help and what it’s really all about, in therapy and in real life.
