Johannes Rosenstein - Blut, reis und tränen

30:00, 2014, Fiction
Tim is 38 and works  as a taxi driver, which gives him enough flexibility to take care of his father who suffers from Alzheimer. Lee, a Chinese student, is 25 and Tim’s boyfriend - although he wants more than occasional sex in Tim’s taxi. The problem is that the father takes all the attention he can get. So Lee urges Tim to take a decision: it’s him or his father, either a relationship or family.
To make matters worse, Tim’s sister Inka accidentally lets the father escape from home. Tim realizes he has to change his attitude if he wants both his father and Lee to stay part of his life.
