Patrick lives with his parents at a naturist campsite, owned by his father. As the resident handyman, he’s on great terms with everyone in the community, but he’s not interested in socialising. He much prefers creating furniture alone in his neatly-ordered workshop. After the unexpected death of his father, however, Patrick must step out of his comfort zone and run the campsite. This career change is not what he has in mind. He has much more important things to worry about – he’s lost his favourite hammer.

The missing tool has a profound effect on him and Patrick’s quest to find it sets off a chain of events that not only affects the shy craftsman, but reveals the hidden nature of the camp residents. They might appear to bare all, but there are many secrets lurking in the woods. From award-winning director Tim Mielants (Peaky BlindersLegion), this original tragicomedy is a delightful and thought-provoking tale about finding your place in the world, with memorable performances from Kevin Janssens (unrecognisable from Revenge), Jemaine Clement (What We Do In The Shadows) and acclaimed stage and screen performer, Pierre Bokma.
