Life is All You Get / Life is a Construction Site
In a huge city like Berlin you literally have to bump into your "big love" - or else it could be that your chance has forever passed. On his way to work at the slaughterhouse, Jan Nebel gets into a street fight. Before he really knows what is going on, he beats up two plainclothes police investigators and finds himself joined by Vera, a beautiful woman who turns out to be his dreamgirl. But their fortune is fragile: Jan is afraid of being HIV-infected, and Vera creeps out of his bed every night ... Just like the other leading characters in this film, Jan and Vera are looking for their own identity, for friendship, a piece of luck and for their "big love". Life Is All You Get is a sensitive and subtle, but also flashy and comical approach to people′s lives in a changing city, focusing on their dreams, fears, and desires.
