Synopsis

From the director of “Peaky Blinders”.
From the producers of “Bullhead” and “Racer and the Jailbird”.


Patrick is the handyman on his father's naturist campsite. The remaining time he dedicates to his hobby, designing and creating furniture. When Patrick loses his campsite hammer, his quest to retrieve it takes him to the farthest corners of the camping grounds. Sure enough, when Patrick's father passes away, Patrick's quest turns existential. Patrick's safety bubble pops and everything he took for granted changes. Is he mourning because of his father? Or is he thinking mostly about his lost hammer? In the meantime, the resident campers are beginning to question Patrick's leadership abilities, fearing for the survival of their beloved sanctuary.

Patrick is an offbeat (and darkly funny) family drama about people's peculiarities, about letting go and being happy with who you are.
