Short film
The Film All-Nighter

The Wölkel family wants to celebrate Christmas with Grandma, as they do every year – but there are some shocking surprises to be unwrapped at this traditional German Christmas party: Grandma Wölkel has revived the Nazi Christmas of her childhood. Maybe this shouldn‘t be such a major problem, but today of all days, the family is expecting an Israeli guest: and the last thing the Wölkel family wants is to be seen as Nazis. Only an unexpected coincidence helps the family to deny the truth.
