Inhalt

Shattered Glass

A broken family. A tragic illness. The will to live...

Invited to his father′s mansion for a party, Jesko is enraged to discover that the invitation is a bold deception. He has leukemia, and his father and brother Ansgar are hoping that a bone-marrow transplant from his long-lost mother might save him.

Sullen and self-pitying, Jesko has no desire to see his mother, who during her swift descent into schizophrenia many years ago had almost killed him and Ansgar. Once beautiful, her illness had transformed her into a despairing shell of a woman. Stifling his impulse to flee, Jesko nevertheless alienates himself from his family with his sarcastic abuse. When her bone-marrow proves unsuitable, his mother, in a moment of clarity and spurred by an instinctive love for her son, reveals the painful secret which could be the only alternative left for Jesko – his father′s illegitimate child. Reluctant to believe the charge, he confronts his father. Now Jesko is forced to recognize that his father would rather sacrifice him than endanger his bourgeois façade. Jesko and his mother search for evidence, but they are discovered by his father and brother and angrily expelled from the estate. Defiantly returning, Jesko crashes a party taking place in the mansion. Suddenly he sees his mother entering the ballroom on the arm of a young man he has never met...
