Joscha is on high alert. He wants to take a pill, but chance encounters with old friends keep him from doing so. A single "one shot" take film! The conversations with his chance encounters give deeper and deeper insights into Joscha's past and his chaotic life. When he's finally alone and takes the pill, his journey finally begins and he wonders if it was the right decision. The film was shot in a single take, with no cuts. The camera follows Joscha through a winter night on the banks of the Rhine in Cologne. "In the simplicity of the plot lies the strength of the film. It sometimes doesn't take much to be drawn into stories. The lead actor Tim-Fabian Hoffmann expresses Joscha's despair without being overly emotional." (FAZ)
