Since his mother left, ten-year-old Jojo has lived alone with his father. One day he finds an injured bird in the forest and secretly takes it home, hiding it from his father.
Jojo's father is a security guard with a volatile personality who drinks to manage the unspoken despair he feels about his wife's absence, which he refuses to discuss with his son.
In the midst of so much uncertainty, Jojo finds comfort and happiness in caring for an abandoned baby bird, a jackdaw, who is even more vulnerable than himself.
KAUWBOY was awarded the Grand Prize of the Deutsches Kinderhilfswerk at the Berlinale.
