Niko is in his late 20s and recently dropped out of college. He lives for the moment, drifting sleeplessly through the streets of Berlin, marvelling at the people around him. With a quiet curiosity, he observes how they cope with everyday life while failing to notice how he himself is becoming an outsider. But, one day, everything changes, and Niko is forced to confront the consequences of his inaction. His girlfriend ends their relationship, his father cuts off his allowance and a psychiatrist diagnoses him with an 'emotional imbalance'. Meanwhile a peculiar beauty from his past confronts him with the emotional wounds he inflicted, his new neighbour – accompanied by meatballs and Schnapps – pours his heart out… But all Niko wants is a decent cup of coffee.
