Fluss des Lebens: Okavango – Fremder Vater
Charlotte (Christina Hecke) works in London as a molecular biologist. The big city, the hustle and bustle, the amenities, the recreational opportunities, that’s what Charlotte wants. She could not imagine a life in the seclusion of Namibia. But after the death of her sister, Charlotte wants to bring her godchildren, her nephew Julian (Tom Gronau) and her niece Lilly (Matilda Jork), to their biological father Gunnar (Roeland Wiesnekker). And he lives in Namibia.
The sudden family reunion is a challenge for everyone involved: the petulant Julian cannot forgive Gunnar for abandoning his mother, his sister and him. Lilly, on the other hand, has become a stranger to her own father and has not yet been able to get over the death of her mother. Meanwhile, Charlotte tries to fight the feelings she still has for Gunnar.
Charlotte no longer understands the world, or rather her world. Only an adventurous journey across the Okavango opens Charlotte’s eyes to a completely different life.
