Andi, a father of three young children, is always strapped for cash and ekes out a living as a labourer. Facing eviction, Andi turns to his ex-girlfriend Sonja - the mother of his youngest child - and borrows a large sum of money to avert his eviction. When he loses his construction job, Andi is unable to pay back the loan, and Sonja insists that he pays up or she will stop him seeing his child. Desperate, Andi decides that an amateur boxing competition, and its cash prize, is his only salvation.
Kinetically directed by Barbara Ott, Jannis Niewöhner is tremendously good as the aggressive, moody Andi, who frequently makes bad decisions but wants nothing more than a decent life for his family.
