Larvenspiel - Masquerades

Mr. Klausmann is worried about his hometown Salzburg since the refugee crisis has brought many foreign people there. Only at the park, where he enjoys watching a little girl doing pantomimes with her father, everything still seems safe. But then Mr. Klausmann’s wallet disappears. As he finds out that the pantomimes are refugees, he immediately accuses them of stealing it. In the end Mr. Klausmann has to learn the hard way that the world is not only black and white.
