In this psychothriller drama, which was inspired by a real case and nominated for the Teddy Award at the Berlinale, local celebrities such as Rummelsnuff are featured. With dizzying trance scenes set in multicultural, sleepless Berlin, directors Stefan Westerwelle and Patrick Schuckmann weave an electrifying fever dream trip. The young Spaniard Luis travels to Berlin in the summer to spend a carefree party weekend. Berlin's nightlife with its infamous clubs, easy to score with drugs and anonymous sex is the perfect place to forget about a painful break-up. However, Luis soon falls into a trap of mysterious events due to his resemblance to a missing Greek student, Dimitri. What begins as an exuberant adventure becomes a breathless chase between reality and dream. "The first good Berlin nightlife film since Berlin Calling." (Berliner Morgenpost)
