Synopsis // Crew // Cast // Festivals / Awards

In only one afternoon, early retired Hubert Lotzmann managed to snub his sisters-in-law, surrender his activist daughter to the police, and forget the birthday of his wife Annemie. Annemie loses patience once he also breaks the family hoover by sucking in her beloved budgie: Hubert has two hours until dinner time, if he hasn’t returned with a repaired hoover by then, he is out on the street!

Panic-stricken Hubert has no choice and sets off, getting into a personal apocalypse that will see him become the hero of the town.
