Christoph begins his year of civil service at a nursing home as the personal caretaker for 28-year-old Sven. The seriously ill young man is suffering from muscular dystrophy and his nursing room has become his own little microcosm which he has been sovereignly controlling for years. Sven’s humor comes across quite strange and somewhat threatening, which Christoph notices immediately. But after their first “welcome crisis”, Sven slowly allows Christoph into his world. He starts to open up and the two young men become friends. Genuine closeness and trust develop, allowing Sven to confide his innermost desires to Christoph.
