Synopsis:

Lorenz, a successful gay author suffering acute writers' block, has to leave Berlin and return to eastern Switzerland to provide care for his aged mother, Rosie. She refuses both outside assistance and a care home, so Lorenz is stuck fast in his small home town of Altstätten. It is not only his mother's battle against losing her dignity that he is struggling with, but also his own midlife crisis. And when long-kept secrets are suddenly revealed under the tensions of family dynamics, Lorenz almost fails to notice that love is knocking on the front door of his parent's house...
