About the Film:
Late at night, psychologist Eliane Hess is called to the hospital bed of 8-year-old Yves. The boy is the only family member to have survived a car crash. Eliane is both horrified and fascinated by the boy’s fate. An invisible bond develops between them, blurring the boundaries between private and working life.
Based on the novel “Finsteres Glück” by Lukas Hartmann, DARK FORTUNE tells us a tender, highly unusual story about belonging and love, exploring the question of guilt and innocence and illustrating the fearless courage to face one’s destiny.

Length: 113 minutes.
To be screened in Swiss German with English subtitles.
