Far Away Country Pa-Isch
Sixteen-year-old Umberto is fed up with life. His mother Ilona frequently changes her lovers. His father disappeared (it is said that he worked as a circus acrobat and had an accident). The father of his younger half-sister, Bianca, went back to Africa.
Umberto′s dream is to leave the sad, small town in Saxony where they live. Ilona decides to move the family to Hamburg, trying to find a better life. Umberto falls in love with Tschibo, a black girl living next door. Umberto is irritated when he finds out that his mother and Tschibo work as prostitutes. He tries to save Bianca and himself, to leave for Africa, for distant "Pa-Isch". After a turbulent journey on a stolen motorbike, they arrive in Berlin where they meet "Le Pain" and his gang who live in the ruins of an old factory. Umberto tries to earn money doing more or less legal jobs. When he realizes that his dream can′t come true he starts a large fire.
