Synopsis:
For Jack (10), having a family is the most important thing in the world. Then, one day, his mother disappears.

Comments:
"We would like to give a special mention to a person who did an incredible work in a film that we all found both authentic, touching and very important. It shows the backside of a rich and ignorant Western Europe where children fight to get their lives on the right tracks. The film is centered and holds a loyal focus on the main character. And it is working so fine, being really strong - because of an extraordinary performance by the lead actor. We would therefore like to give a special mention to Ivo Pietzcker in 'Jack'."
