Alexander, born into a wealthy family, finds himself left to his own fate when his parents decide to abandon him in various boarding schools throughout his childhood. The young man, full of ambition, decides to build his own empire.
After the birth of her son, Alexander’s mother, Anna, returns to live in her home town of Zürich. In a burst and distant family bubble, he is declared a hyperactive child at the age of 6. He travels from boarding school to psychiatric institutions, undergoes medical treatment and meets his mother sporadically. Cut off from his mother throughout his adolescence, deprived and unable to form strong bonds of friendship with people his own age, augurs a painful future for young Alexander. But he has decided otherwise.
The intention, the message
This project is intended to show that we are not all so different after all. These wealthy people live with joy, sadness, love, work, and give their best to live up to what is expected of them. Just because we are rich doesn’t mean that life is easy. Behind the appearances of a life of luxury can also hide problems and difficulties of an emotional or psychic nature in particular.
