Two young men have to spend five days and five nights together on a rooftop in Berlin's Mitte district to get an exclusive view of the most famous couple of the universe. They are as far apart from each other as the Odd Couple, but they need to get along with each other for 120 hours.

One is Maik Tremper, a professional paparazzo with residences in London and Monte Carlo; the other is Momme Ulmer, a lifeguard and film projectionist from a small island in the North Sea. Two worlds collide and tension mounts between the hard-nosed photographer and the love-stricken fan. Could this really be the beginning of a wonderful friendship?

During the course of their 120 hours together, the two young men accidentally meet six very different women and everything turns out differently that Maik and Momme had expected or hoped for. They both have changed by the end of their summer adventure.

Waiting for Angelina is a contemporary urban comedy of manners and a satiric look at the current international celebrity cult and the hardships of surviving one week in Berlin.
