A love story in Frankfurt that offers all sorts of cultural adventures: a Congolese man and a German woman fall in love and enter into a relationship, knowing full well that it is not going to be easy. Indeed, the man has more criminal energy than the woman would like, but she would rather be his saviour than his ally. Lisa Bierwirth tells a pleasantly down-to-earth tale about this difficult union in her debut film, which owes a large part of its success to its great protagonists. At the same time, she observes the prejudices that arise everywhere, enabling one to experience how everyday racism works.
