1991: Summer in West Berlin, one year after reunification

A young taxi driver casually experiments with a video camera – films and comments what is happening around him. Spontaneous, raw and authentic.

Locations, which no longer exist, bizarre passengers, unexpected encounters and lots of time waiting at godforsaken taxi ranks.

A jump back to the turbulent Berlin shortly after the Wall came down. And a likeable, cranky taxi driver on a quest…
