The Lower-Austrian Landesklinikum Tulln: In direct-cinema style, Constantin Wulff approaches everyday life in the children and youth psychiatry ward, which is shaped by routine, but also social warmth and empathy. Observing, never intervening, he focuses on the fate of individuals and crisis situations, tells of hope, courageous help, and its limitations. The lack of agitation makes this an unconventional look at the subject of psychiatry, which is highly charged in the media. Practical, empathetic, and far from all expectations.
