Victoria has spent the night partying, dancing, and drinking. On the street she meets Sonne and his friends and heads off with them. Maybe because it’s Fuß’s birthday or because Boxer dances in the street for her. Or because Sonne doesn’t just have Berlin attitude, but a whole lot of heart, and promises to show her his city. Or simply because the night is still young. The young woman wants to experience something, and these guys, who don’t play by any rules, still have plans. But these events get out of control and come to a dramatic end. Shot in an extraordinary way in one long sequence shot – just one take, without a single cut. (SW)
