Twelve-year-old Mo sets off on vacation with his parents to a campsite in the small town of Lychen. Yet again. Mo has had enough of this holiday resort microcosm; this year, however, things are a bit different. It's 1992 and, although the same people meet up at the camp every year, their relationships are changing. Those who come from the former East Germany don't have any money - like Mo's parents. They're able to buy him a rubber dinghy for his birthday but can't afford the paddles to go with it. His friend Enrico's parents relocated to the West, so they have money. Yet, as Mo discovers, wealth isn't a recipe for happiness. A look back at a time of radical social change through the relentless gaze of a child who decides to take his life into his own hands. At last.
