The Fox is the true story of Franz Streitberger, Adrian Goiginger’s great-grandfather, a motorcycle courier for the Austrian Army who was soon drafted into the German Wehrmacht.

At the beginning of the Second World War, the introverted young soldier encounters a wounded fox cub, which he then looks after as if it were his own child and takes with him to occupied France. Through this unique friendship with the wild animal, his own past as an outcast farmer’s son, which he has always run away from, slowly catches up with him…
