German with English subtitles
Two teenage girls, Carina and Denise, try their best to flee the void and the pain of their harsh lives. After being caught stealing, endless hours of community service await them. While Carina picks up litter with little to no motivation, she runs across Nikolas, a homeless man lying amidst his belongings. But even though Carina only has eyes for the pills and smokes she could snatch, it's the fascinating and funny person that catches her interest. A tender bond is forming over cigarettes and common loneliness. And maybe there’s even a sort of perspective to be found, a perspective that Carina had been lacking for all her life and future.
