Summary

Goodbye Berlin

Adaptation of the eponymous novel by Wolfgang Herrndorf. 14-year-old Maik comes from a wealthy, albeit dysfunctional family. Deemed a bore and outsider at school, he doesn't stand a chance to get noticed by his secret love. His classmate Andrej Tschichatschow, called "Tschick", is also an outsider, but for different reasons: He is an impoverished migrant kid living in dire conditions in Berlin-Marzahn and often causes trouble. Eventually, the two unlike boys become friends, and when Maik is spending the summer holidays at home alone, Tschick comes up with an idea: With a stolen car, he wants to take Maik on a trip to Wallachia where his grandfather lives. Thus begins an adventurous journey through East Germany, for the two forgot to bring along a map. On the way, they pick up a girl of their age named Isa, who is heading for Prague and is willing to show them the right way.
