‘Tschick’, newly arrived from Russia, and Maik, a middle-class boy dealing with his mother’s alcoholism, are two teenagers in Berlin with very different social backgrounds, who have bonded through their shared experience of boredom and roles as outsiders. As the summer holidays, and the birthday party of a girl in their class approaches, the pair boldly decide to embark on a road trip in a stolen car in an effort to instantly go from uncool to cool. Setting off on the joyride with no mobile phone or map, the boys learn lessons around self-confidence, friendship and first loves in what will prove to be an unforgettable summer. ‘Goodbye Berlin’ is an acclaimed and warm-hearted coming-of-age tale from Germany.
Three radical friends subvert the ruling classes by rearranging their mansions, but one such trip goes critically wrong, as friends and enemies bond.
