Five young friends try to cope with their everyday lives and to hold on to their self-created little family, but nothing is forever.

Five youngsters who grow up in one of these places in the middle of nowhere, where freedom is having a driving license and a car. Five youngsters, who have to decide whether to leave or stay. One last winter together until they finish school. Katja, Sascha, Benni, Laila and Schöller – they seek each other, they run away from each other. They kiss, they brawl. They love each other. They circle around each other in an interplay of differentiation, violence, love and loneliness. Intimacy and pain go hand in hand.
