ABOUT MOVIE

Moritz (22) follows his boyfriend Jonas to Berlin, only to be abandoned by him within a few weeks. He finds security with the older Noah for some time but then moves on. He changes his looks and dives into the city’s vibrating techno world. He learns to express his repressed desires but also starts to lose himself in drugs and emotional alienation. With the help of his queer friends, Moritz develops his ideas of sexuality and masculinity, leading him a little closer to himself.
