Good Luck   

Short Film

Tom grows up in a crowded orphanage,

often visiting his favorite lake.

As a young adult, he founds a music club with his friend Cem. His girlfriend Lilli is expecting a child.

As he pursues success in life and business,

he suddenly wins an exorbitant sum in the lottery. Tom reacts with joy, but also with worry:

he is afraid to lose the money, as most winners do, to careless spending. He does everything he can

to secure his wealth and even multiply it.

He takes extreme measures, and after many setbacks, he achieves lasting financial success. 

But what price has he had to pay? With whom should he share his wealth and his success?

Only when it is already too late does Tom

realize that he has distanced himself from his friends and family.
