Niko Fischer is living from day to the next.  He has dropped out of law school. He roams through Berlin, observing people in the city and lets himself drift around. One day everything changes: Niko's father stops his monthly payments, a psychologist revokes his driver's license, a neighbour complains about life and starts crying, an acquaintance from school admits that she was once madly in love with him at school. An old man in a pub shares a traumatic childhood experience. By the end of it, the old man is dead and Niko may have shown something like sympathy and a sense of responsibility for the first time. It's finally time for him to grow up.
