Be a Man

A few weeks ago I became the father of a daughter. There is probably no more significant moment in a man‘s life than this. But at the same time I found myself in a crisis: During an argument, my girlfriend fiercely confronted me with: „Be a man!“. This confused me and left me with the question: What does that really mean? In this film, I am searching for my role as a father, as a man in my relationship and in society. I will go to the most different places to meet the most different men: in football stadiums and brothels, in the forest and in a monastery. I want to find out how it is possible to regain orientation for a life in modern society between the extremes of being macho or softie.
