Szelíd teremtés - A Frankenstein-terv

Tender Son - The Frankenstein Project

Long ago, a young man fathered a child without ever knowing what became of him. Now 17, that son Rudi comes home hoping to reunite with his family after years spent in an institution. Returning to his mother, he hopes to find acceptance, affection and, most importantly, who his father is, notice that he is not welcome. Almost by accident, Rudi slips into a casting session. The director of the film is transfixed by his innocence and thinks he has found his lead. But a terrible event soon compromises Rudi’s good intentions. He becomes a hunted murderer, and the director realizes that Rudi, this peculiar and silent boy, is his son and own monstrous creation. The director now has no other choice but to accompany him on his inevitable, brutal path and their common search for redemption.
