Victoria, a young Spanish woman, dances through the Berlin scene with abandon. She meets four mates outside a club who introduce themselves as Sonne, Boxer, Blinker and Fuß. They quickly get chatting. Sonne and Victoria take a fancy to each other and slip away from the group at the first opportunity. But their tender flirting is rudely interrupted by the others because, for these pals, the night is far from over. To settle an old debt they have to pull off a dodgy deal. 

Spotlighting an unrestrained rave night in Berlin that turns into a criminal act, director Sebastian Schipper takes us on this wild adventure in a single uninterrupted take. 

"Victoria is an idealist – when she does something, she’s all in: she plays the piano she’s all in; she meets someone she likes, she’s all in. This is the kind of person she is. For me, this was the most interesting aspect of the one take, as we could find these virtues of the character through the improvisation of the one take, through their interactions. Their dialogues, you couldn’t write, this developed through the improvisation." (Sebastian Schipper)
