Four insecure men just trying to hang on to their pride find their lives intersecting on the highways of the German Ruhr region in this drama from director Bastian Guenther. For soccer coach Georg, tonight's game will dictate the outcome of his future career. Likewise, bathroom equipment salesman Jorg also stands to lose his job if sales don't perk up, and given that his personal life is currently in shambles he struggles to keep his numbers up. Freelance television reporter Dieter, on the other hand, may not fear for losing his job as he chases his latest sensational story, though he would like to spend a bit more time with his young son. Unfortunately in order to do so, Dieter has to contend with his embittered ex-wife Rita. Meanwhile, out at the local mall, ageing pop star Heinz greets his many adoring fans. Despite the fact that he is still viewed as a superstar by the public at large, Heinz is beginning to feel like the product of a bygone era.
