A journey through time



From my first conscious thought on my father, he has been Don Quixote to me: A self-declared knight who wants to defeat the giants but is fighting windmills.

30 years ago he worked as a development aid in Cusco. His best friend paid him a visit there and got shot under unknown circumstances.

This traumatic event threw my fathers world completely out of joint. He decided to go back to Germany but a part of him remained in Peru.

And now:


30 years after these tragic events, I am the same age as my father was back then and soon going to be a father myself. Time to travel to a new life. In this documentary, I'm going to play the part my father had in my eyes. So I’m going to be a Don Quixote as well: a young man who heard so many stories that he decides to go out and tell his own.

To do so, I'm going on an adventurous journey with a motorbike through Peru following the steps of my father. Questions in my luggage: Where did my father go after he came back? Can I find the security  that he lost? What will I do if I'll find it?


I intend to go back in time and change the future.
