Christoph, 31, dissatisfied author of trashy novels, jobs at a car rental company to survive. His desire to write an authentic and meaningful crime novel will change his life in a rather different way than originally planned. Because it turns out that his object of study, Dom, 32, who is the gofer for Chico, the king of the local gangster milieu, is not the exciting research subject that Christoph had hoped he had found for his novel – far from it!


Christian Zübert was born in 1973 in Würzburg and studied German Philology before he became a scriptwriter and director. His films as a director include: LAMMBOCK - SHIT HAPPENS (2001), THE TREASURE OF THE WHITE FALCONS (2005), HARDCOVER (2008), THREE QUARTER MOON (2011), TOUR DE FORCE (2014); and ONE BREATH (2015). He has also (co-)written the scripts for the films FANDANGO, GIRLS ON TOP, COMPLETE IDIOT, RED ZORA, and VICKY AND THE TREASURE OF THE GODS, among others.
