When three siblings reunite at their family estate after the death of their father, they are shocked by the reappearance of Kyra—their long-lost sister who vanished more than twenty earlier when she was just a toddler. They never expected to see Kyra again—she disappeared during the break-up of their parents' hippie commune, where all the kids were born. But when Kyra discovers that her very existence has been kept a secret, she starts to uncover more old mysteries. Soon enough, the dynamics within the family are in turmoil as the two brothers and the two sisters find themselves unearthing the roots of their childhood memories and the cause for their suppression. A critically acclaimed and award-winning feature debut, THE FATHERLESS (Die Vaterlosen) is a disturbing journey into one family's past and a gripping study of solitude, belonging and freedom.
