About HAPPY: When the almost retired father regularly flies to Thailand to enjoy the company of women his daughter’s age, this is understandably embarrassing to the latter. But things are getting serious now: Dieter has been in a stable relationship for three years with Tukta, who calls long distance every morning to wake up the loner and passionate amateur farmer. The wedding is looming. Is this love, as Dieter has persuaded himself? Or more of a “trade”, as his daughter Carolin, the director, accuses him? With some courage she faces not only her father’s unfulfilled desires and fears of being lonely in old age but also her own ambivalent feelings.
― Lars Meyer, DOK Leipzig
