A day in the life of a young Berlin slacker.

27 year-old Niko is still living the life of a student, but he little knows when he wakes up one morning that the next 24 hours are going to be the most turbulent of his life. His girlfriend dumps him; a psychiatrist declares him too unstable to drive a car; his father has cut off his allowance. All he wants is a cup of coffee — but even that may be too much to ask. A wry, beautifully filmed and effortlessly charming comedy.
