“Konraad writes a letter. This is where the film begins. Eventually he will die. This is where the film ends.” - filmmaker Nanouk Leopold After the death of his wife, Konraad decides he wants to join her, much to the dismay of his only daughter, Maria. Maria's own family is a mess. Her daughter Sabine is cheating on her husband who has fallen in love with Sabine's sister, Eva.

Wolfsbergen explores four generations of a family whose relationships are cracking while being put to the test. Filmmaker Nanouk Leopold's second feature, Guernsey, featured at MIFF 06.
