Die beste aller Welten

The Best Of All Worlds

Seven-year-old Adrian lives with his mother Helga and her partner Günter in the outskirts of the city of Salzburg. The imaginative boy wants to become an adventurer. He does not realize that Helga and her friends, who are in the apartment almost every day, with the light blocked out by bed sheets hung over the windows, are heroin addicts and high even in his presence. Time and again, Helga manages to maintain a balance between caring for her son and her addiction, thus giving him a happy childhood – simply the best of all worlds. But in fact she doesn’t.
