Georg is fifty years old and has spent half his life working as a music critic at a renowned daily paper. When his boss announces one day that he is fired, the shock comes as a direct blow to his ego. Georg yearns for revenge; the boss should suffer. But that isn’t as easy as it sounds. Josef Hader pulls it off all the better in this feature film debut.
