Two young teenage boys steal a car and embark on a road trip that will change their lives.

While his mother is in rehab and his father is on a ‘business trip’ with his assistant, 14-year-old outsider Maik Klingenberg is spending the summer holidays alone by the pool at his parents' villa. But then Tschick appears. Tschick, whose real name is Andrej Tschichatschow, originally comes from deepest Russia, but now lives in a high-rise in Berlin-Marzahn. He arrives at the villa with a stolen Lada. So begins a journey, without a map or a compass, through summery, provincial eastern Germany. This is the story of a summer that we would all like to experience once... the best summer of all!

German, 2016, Colour, 93 min., Rated M Dir. Fatih Akin
