Breathing (15)

Roman Kogler (Schubert) is 19 years old and has lived all his life in institutions.  Abandoned by his mother as a young child and raised in an orphanage, he is now serving time in a juvenile detention centre, having accidentally killed a boy of his own age in a brawl.  A solitary boy with an uncommunicative attitude, he has no friends, family or connections to turn to in the outside world.  But when threatened with a life behind bars unless he finds a job and sticks to it, he eventually finds a probation job working at the municipal morgue in Vienna. When Roman is one day faced with a dead woman who bears his family name, it occurs to him that this may be the mother who gave him up for adoption and he begins to explore his past.
