Hanna, 21, just out of prison, must complete community service as a condition of her release. This will be done on a farm deep in the Black Forest. Farmer Uwe is taciturn and more often than not remains silent when he really should say something: to Hanna, this strange temporary helper from the big city; to his wife Michaela; to his few old friends and also to the bank that is seeking to call in the loan which, since the milk strike, he can no longer service. Conversely, Hanna makes no secret of how out of place she feels in the village with these stubborn peasants -- almost as uncomfortable as she is in her own skin. Time and again she sneaks away from the farm and travels over to the neearby small town where, with obsessive energy, she tries to get close to a family with a foster child. But when Uwe finally kicks Hanna out of the house, which actually no longer belongs to him, she suddenly does everything she can to stay. The environment has changed her and the original reason which brought her to this god-forsaken place slowly fades into the background.



Born in Basel, Switzerland in 1980, Moritz Kramer studied video and writing at the Berlin University of the Arts and worked as a video artist, composer, songwriter and musical director at various theatres.

In 2011 he released his debut album as a musician, and in 2012 he founded the band Die Höchste Eisenbahn with Francesco Wilking. His short film, Eat, which premiered at the 2012 Hof Festival, won several awards including the Murnau Short Film Prize and was screened at over 200 festivals worldwide. STUBBORN BOY is his first feature.
