Handful Of Water (Eine Handvoll Wasser)

09th November, 2020

Handful of Water is a german feature film brought to you by Neopol Films. The film follows Konrad, 85, a notoriously grumpy old man. And on top of it all, his daughter now wants to adopt her lesbian girlfriend’s children.

Thurba, 10, runs away from the police who try to deport her family. But they can only deport them if all the children are present. So Thurba takes off through a second-floor window and runs away, for the sake of her family.

Konrad wakes up in the middle of the night. There’s something in the basement? Quietly, he sneaks downstairs, armed with a nail gun, and fires into the darkness, hitting Thurba, who screams like a banshee. Thurba had nowhere to go and he shot her. But something about the girl from Yemen moves him, whether he likes it or not. When Thurba offers him a deal, he has to make a decision.
