Why do young people become radicalised? In Germany as well as world-wide, new and old right-wing extremists are stirring up hatred against minorities and foreigners. They preach violence and promote a toxic, militant masculinity. Who are these young people and what do they want? Do certain familial constellations facilitate their radicalisation? What are the roles of mothers in all of this, or of fathers? How do mothers deal with the radicalisation of their children? Based on interviews and conversations with experts, director Karen Breece will develop a text on this issue and stage it together with the company.
