A high-rise estate in Hamburg. The young boxer Mauser falls in love with Jackie (Emilia Schüle) a red-haired girl from a wealthy family. When his father (Clemens Schick) tells him that he has killed his mother and then disappears, Mauser sets out to find him. But Jackie is set on going to an American Indian festival – a unique opportunity for Mauser to get closer to her. And then there’s Edda, the nice girl from the video store. Jackie or boxing or Edda? And where is his father? The screen adaptation of the eponymous novel is a boxer film, road movie, Western and music video – and a wonderful homage to Hamburg.
