A Heavy Heart

(Herbert)

Germany's contribution to our German Language Film Festival

Poster for the German drama A Heavy HeartFormer Eastern German boxing champ Herbert has had a tough life since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Now scratching out a living as a bouncer and debt collector, he tries to revive the past by coaching his young boxing protégé, Eddy. After a training session, Herbert suddenly collapses, but he ignores the signs.
When his physical deficiencies become more and more apparent, Herbert finally sees a specialist, who diagnoses him with a fatal neural disease. With little time left, Herbert reaches out to his estranged daughter Sandra, whom he abandoned when the family fell apart. Now a mother herself, Sandra is still deeply hurt and afraid of allowing her dying father to be a part of her life again.
