After a grave snowboarding accident, young Valentin becomes a paraplegic. The former daredevil has to realize that his life is forever changed, and in order to cope with the new situation, he follows his mother's advice and applies for an experimental theatre workshop in Southern Tirol. Once there, Valentin eventually learns that all other participants are mentally disabled. At first, the embittered sport fanatic won't be associated with them, but gradually he begins to see the unique qualities of the individual group members.
A daily highlight for Valentin are his encounters with caretaker Mira – alas, she is romantically involved with the utterly unsympathetic Marc. Nevertheless, Valentin won't give up, and with the help of his new handicapped friends Lukas and Titus, he plans to play a prank on Marc: The offbeat trio decide to rob the gas station at which their rival works.
