    • Synopsis
    • Kevin is young, Kevin is cool, Kevin is angry. Kevin wants a revolution! But what could he possibly revolt against? His comfortable, trouble free life bores him to death. So, he decides to set up a commune with his best friend Manuel. As an initiation ritual the neo-revolutionaries smash their smartphones to pieces: Back to real emotions, drugs and stealing; No more social media; Break free of conventions, escape consumerism - that’s their goal! Together they love, yell, smoke pot and try to hone their manifesto, which proves a challenge when they struggle to find a cause, their drive and anger dissipates and they realise that their parents are better revolutionaries. «Let the old folks die» is a satirical film about a generation, who in their bid to break free from boredom end up finding themselves at the edge of an empty abyss. That’s no way to start a revolution. Or is it?
