    • Synopsis
    • Lorenz Meran, (40) 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. When he finds himself confronted with the fact that fun-loving Rosie refuses both outside assistance and a care home, he discovers that he is stuck fast in his small home town of Altstätten. But it is not only his mother's battle against being dictated to and losing her dignity that he is struggling with. It's 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.
      A 40 ans, Lorenz Meran, un écrivain homosexuel à succès, traverse une crise de création aiguë; il doit quitter Berlin pour rentrer en Suisse orientale et s’occuper de sa vieille mère Rosie, dépendante de son assistance. A son retour, il se rend compte que Rosie se cramponne à la vie, elle refuse aussi bien l’aide d’étrangers que la maison de retraite et lui se retrouve pour l’instant coincé dans son bled d’Altstätten. Pris dans l’embrouillamini de la lutte de Rosie contre sa mise sous tutelle et la perte de sa dignité, des dissensions familiales et des anciens secrets, Lorenz ne s’aperçoit pas que l’amour frappe à sa porte.
