More often than not all very fast

For years, Albert has been visiting Fred during the holidays and at weekends, but they’ve never really grown close. Albert only ever called Fred Fred, never Father. Fred is a child trapped in the body of an old man, he spends his time reading encyclopaedias, waves at green cars and guards his prize possession jealously. Albert is 22, grew up in a children’s home and never knew his mother. Somehow he senses that Fred is the only one who can help him find out more about his background. But Fred has only five months left to live. With time against them, Albert and Fred set out on an adventurous voyage of discovery that leads them via the underground sewers into the distant past – all the way back to a night in August 1912, and to Jasfe and Josfer...

A highly original comedy and humorous take on the concept of the family saga that examines existential issues from a witty and charming new angle.
