Der Onkel

The Hawk

Michael Ostrowski
,
Helmut Köpping
Mike Bittini, gambler and bon viveur, returns to his brother’s home and family after many years’ absence. There is a reason for this rather unexpected visit: his brother Sandro, a celebrity lawyer, is in a coma – and Sandro’s wife Gloria and the kids Niki (13) and Stefanie (17) are in a state of emergency. Mike decides to help the family in need – but not without an ulterior motive. He creeps into their home like the hawk into a henhouse and thoroughly stirs things up. The Hawk comes to help, causes chaos and eventually finds love.
