Siegheilkirchen 1967: between parents’ inn, right-wing village dwellers, and his first love, an artistically talented “snotty-nosed brat” attempts to find out what he wants from life. Caricaturist Manfred Deix’s cosmos of characters and humor can be relived in Austria’s first full-length, 3D animated film, which is based on his life and work. A sensual celebration of Deix’s critical gaze at Austrian society.
