The young Adolf Hitler wanted to be an artist. After he was rejected for the study program, he went further down on his luck and became homeless. What happens to people when they lose control of their lives? When their potential and ambitions are not aligned with the way they are viewed by society? Using Hitler’s life as a starting point, Villevoye asks questions about a society that dismisses complete groups as ‘unnecessary’. He takes us back to a moment when the future could go in all directions – for Hitler, and for the world.
