Inhalt

Heinz and Fred
Heinz and Fred, father (70) and son (25) live beneath the same roof in the village of Ahlsdorf in central Germany. They are inseparable and live in a huge realm where they have already restored numerous very old and broken machines. Signs of past and future work are all over the place. They work without intending to use the restored products. They get up together every morning at 6 o′clock and go to bed early after a day of hard work.

Heinz is an old ruler, full of experience and trust. He is strict but also humorous. Having reached the retirement age, he thinks about his succession, too, the inheritance of his life. And Fred? He lives in two worlds. On the one hand, in the small kingdom of screws and metal that he wants to take over some day. On the other hand, in his almost ordinary life as a young man.

"Heinz and Fred" tells a story about self-determination and the quest for the meaning of life. The life of Heinz and Fred is deprived of the norms and expectations of a world which is coined by discussions about low-paid jobs, unemployment, and the demands of a mobile and hectic working world.
