Greedy (Gierig)


Berlin in the spring of the nineties, a tragic love story: the young reporter Natascha starts an affair with the boxer Sugar. They fall in love, but Natascha doesn't want to admit this to herself or to Sugar: her self-doubts, her fear of risks and a common past bind her to the alternative artist and bar-owner Gary - who lives with her for similar reasons. The fragile construct of relationships collapses when Gary learns that he is dangerously ill.
