A Coffee in Berlin (Oh Boy)

Niko is in his late twenties and dropped out of law school a long time ago. Since then, he has lived in the day, drifting through the streets of Berlin and marveling at the people around him. With quiet curiosity, he observes them as they go about their daily lives, not noticing how he himself is becoming an outsider. But suddenly Niko is caught up in reality and confronted with the consequences of his passivity: his girlfriend draws a line in the sand, a psychologist attests to his emotional imbalance, his father cuts him off and there seems to be no more normal coffee in the whole town. When a strange beauty also shows up and confronts him with their shared past, the day takes a surprising turn.
