Synopsis

During a 50,000km road tour of Australia the film makers encountered 89 year-old Helmut. Living alone and remotely for nearly 40 years in a hand-built house on the bed of one of the largest rivers in the country, he was wearing only a loin cloth when they arrived unannounced.

Helmut's House is a portrait of an original character leading a truly unconventional lifestyle in the wilderness, and a rare document of a unique encounter with a remarkable human being.
