Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 01/2018

17-year-old Cyril is funny, smart and an all-round good guy. Just his somewhat overlarge nose spoils the picture. In an adolescent world where beauty appears to be everything, it seems there's no room for him. So he dons a mask and becomes an underground hero of the hiphop scene, a black belt when it comes to words as weapons. On a school trip to Berlin with Roxy, a stunning new classmate, Cyril is not the only one taken with her. Benno, the class Casanova has his eye on the girl too and makes a nasty wager. Roxy is more interested in the introverted Rick, who is not only shy but also slow. Cyril hastens with his spoken word skills to Rick's aid, and falls head over heels in love with Roxy himself. So whose brave heart will win the fair lady?
