A bittersweet comedy about parent-child relations in which gruff single dad Urs's plans for his teenage daughter’s gap year include her volunteering in a Costa Rican hospital. Jette has other ideas however, that include her boyfriend Mario. On the day of her departure, Urs gets completely worked up and a few mishaps lead to Jette finding herself in a position to decide her own fate.

This unusual take on the father-daughter tale has plenty of narrative twists and turns that reveal Urs’s basic desire, despite clunking missteps, to find the best for his daughter.

Contains scenes with nudity
