Program: Kurzspielfilm Programm 5

Raphael is fifty-four and forced to accept a job offered by the job center: night guard for a security firm. He and his beloved dog Rio have long moved back home again to his bedridden mother, who is lovingly cared for by a caregiver. As Raphael slowly comes to terms with the situation, an accident tears it all apart. A touching look at a generation that is forced to live ever more precariously, and feels forgotten.
