ELEFANTEN WACHSEN SCHNELL is the story of a separated couple, Matthias and Anna, whose wounds are still open and sore, but decide nonetheless to organize a joint birthday party for their seven-year-old son, Lukas. At the end of the party, after the guests have gone with their balloons and pieces of cake, one child, Julius, remains behind, uncollected by his parents. This triggers a rapid chain of events. At first, Matthias just wants to get Julius off his hands. But then the helpless boy awakens his protective instincts and opens his eyes to his own son’s needs.© Friede Clausz/Weydemann Bros.
