Married couple Elisabeth and Stephan are expecting guests – Elisabeth’s successful brother Thomas, his pregnant girlfriend Anna and their (quite possibly) gay childhood friend, René. The evening progresses pleasantly until Thomas announces the chosen name for their unborn child – Adolf. A vicious argument ensues and long-held secrets, hidden resentments and other hurtful opinions social decorum has prevented from being said are finally revealed. How About Adolf? is an outrageously funny satire that bravely comments on changing attitudes in German society to the trauma of the war and its legacy.
