Winnetou´s Son (2014)
The blond, pale and somewhat pudgy Max has been an Indian since his father hung an eagle feather around his neck right after birth. But now his parents have split up and his dad has forgotten what it means to be an Indian. Max, however, is confident that he can bring his dad’s memory back on track – along with his parents’ relationship – when he learns that the role of Winnetou’s son is to be awarded at the Karl May Festival. He then does everything in his power to win the casting and thus fulfill his plan.
