De Patrick


Patrick is in charge of maintenance at a naturist campsite owned by his father. His workshop is as well-ordered as his life, but nothing lasts forever. The loss of Patrick’s favourite hammer has a profound effect on him and sets off a chain of events from which the gloomy lad emerges as a new man. A tragicomedy about the importance of keeping an eye on your tools, about existential nudity, and about people for whom a trailer is their whole world.
