Suburb for Peter, A

Peter is thirty, sporty and stylish. He is also good at concealing his mental illness and social disorders. He doesn't feel at ease in the institution where he is living. His dream is to lead a normal life, within normal society, with a wife and kids. The film follows Peter over the course of five years, as the institution tears down the old structures, reorganizing the lives of the 290 inhabitants. Peter thinks this will make his dream come true.
