Synopsis:
You can never be too young to be a murderer, thinks 11-year-old Sebastian, who's convinced that he killed his mother at the age of 0. The proof is on her tombstone: she died the day he was born! Sebastian is terrified by the thought of going to hell or spending many long years in purgatory. He decides to start doing good deeds in the hope of knocking off at least a few years of purgatory. The results are anything but encouraging, except when he tries to find a wife for his dad: Lorenz and Sebastian's teacher Veronika fall madly in love with one another. The only problem is: Veronika is married. But since Sebastian already killed his mother, it should be a cinch to eliminate a bothersome husband...
