14-year-old MAX goes with his father WOLFGANG (45) and his friends on a camping trip in the woods. The two haven´t seen each other since the separation of the parents a few months ago and experience a weekend of rapprochement with beer, men´s talk and masculinity rites. Soon, however, the actual idyll of the trip becomes more and more frightening and the renewed bond between Max and Wolfgang is put to the test.
