A witty comedy from hit director Marc Rothemund (Sophie Scholl: The Final Days) that assembles a brilliant cast on the big screen, It’s For Your Own Good tells the story of three daughters, three admirers and three desperate fathers.

Arthur (Heiner Lauterbach, Welcome to Germany and in this year’s Grandparenting 101), Kalle (Jürgen Vogel, The Wave) and Yus (Hilmi Sözer), three fathers who are also brothers-in-law, couldn’t be more different. But they have one thing in common: their daughters have all fallen in love with the wrong man.

Antonia (Janina Uhse, How About Adolf? GER19), cancelled her wedding because she fell head-over-heels for a political activist squatter. Luna has fallen in love with a nude photographer. Meanwhile, Sophie skips school to spend her time with Andi, who seems to have shady criminal connections.

Having no other choice, the unlikely trio of fathers decide to form a secret pact with one goal: the potential sons-in-law must go! Together they embark on a hilarious journey where no idea seems too crazy in order to get rid of them.
