    • Synopsis
    • Berlin. The capital of youngsters from the years 2000. The city were past and future have been always mixed, history and modernity liver together in the same streets, a few steps away of distance... Here, at the fourth floor of a student housing building in the neighborhood of Kreuzberg, five European guys live the Erasmus experience, each of them in his own way...
      MARCO (23 year old, Italian) joined Erasmus in Berlin to make his parents happy who want he could study Law abroad to be “a better lawyer”. Unfortunately, he would like to become a movie director and the only real reason he decided to leave was the ended loving relationship with his ex girlfriend.
      SOFIA (22 years old, Spanish) joined the Erasmus to improve her studies in language and to have more chances to realize her dream to become an interpreter. She is the girlfriend of Alejandro who lives in Valencia who was always opposing her departure and keeps pushing her to feel guilty. They are living therefore a long distance relationship.
      ABBIE (21 years old, Scottish) joined the Erasmus to find Karl, a Berliner she met years before and who she is convinced is her soul's mate. About him, she only knows his first name and looking for him in Berlin is like looking for a needle in a haystack.
      PIERRE (22 years old, French), joined the university for the only reason to participate in the Erasmus, thinking about all its stereotypes, and joined the Erasmus with the only reason to hook up as many girls as possible. On the other hand, he didn't consider that his levity on relationships could have unexpected consequences...
      HEINZ (24 years old, German) shares the apartment with the other Erasmus students since he moved to Berlin to study architecture. He can't take the final exam before the degree because he has a psychological block due to a fight with his father who discovered his homosexuality.
      Five guys, five different worlds with different destinations...
      Marco is trying to merge his passion for cinema with his studies but he is distracted by Abbie to from whom he starts to be attracted... Abbie ignores him, till she understand her research of the mysterious Karl will finish with nothing in her hands...
      In the meantime the friendship between Marco and Sofia risk to become something more deep and Marco is hesitant to approach one girl or the other... But Sofia is too busy try to live her relationship with Alejandro who goes to visit her in Berlin once in a while because he is worried that their love story is ending..
      And while Heinz tries in any way to overtake his mental block and pass the final exam, Pierre makes a mess after the other, till one of his girlfriends (a friend of Abbie) gets pregnant, or at least it's what he thinks...
      After several parties, misunderstandings and tricks, the guys will reach the final exams of the year almost completely safe and sounds... at least until Karl will appear in the scene, mixing the cards again and creating a new confusion. At the end, after a very different year to what they expected at the beginning, everyone will make his own choice. And, as usual, will not be without consequences...
