16-year-old Kalle wanders through a wasteland in Berlin. He regrets a momentous act that will change his life significantly. „I really don’t know how it all started…“ We begin with Kalle at 10 years old. Alone at night in his ‘hood. His first love. His Jugendweihe (civic initiation ceremony). Dangerous dares on the city’s district heating pipes. Friendships and weddings. Trial, conviction, jail. The world outside keeps on turning. Coming-of-age story and hybrid of direct cinema, graphic novel and in-depth conversations. A radically honest and poetic reflection on love, family, fate and guilt, carried by the hope for a better life.
