“An 86-Hour-Roadtrip, that conveighs an urgency every second of the way."
"A heavy, wild, pleasently crazy and also sensationally entertaining movie."
"WACH is convincing throughout, it's vivid and daring."
"At 36 years Kim Frank has a good chance to become the German wunderkind a second time in his life."
"Kim Franks debut is different than usual movies, it's frightingly close to reality."
Two girlfriends want to stay awake as long as possible - without drugs. C. (Jana McKinnon) and Nike (Alli Neumann) are 17 years old, but they pretend to be 20. They want to get out. Away from the hoplessness of their surroundings. They want to feel something. Something pure. An intoxicating ride over 86 sleepless hours begins. C. and Nike are filiming their experiment, capturing everything on camera. Yet, the lack of sleep is forcing them back into reality. An ending that also marks the end of their adolescence.
Nike’s dad is never home. The small flat in a poor neighborhood, is the perfect place for their experiment. The girls buy groceries to last them a couple of days. They black out all the windows and hide all clocks to lose any sense of time. But when Nike’s dad suddenly shows up, C. and Nike got to leave the house. Out in the rainy projects, they quickly get attacked in the streets. They have to keep moving.
Downtown, Nike loses the little money they had on them. The two friends are close to giving up, but they can’t go home now. They have to stay awake. Trying to escape a very cold night, they end up in obscure places. A strange, sinister part of the city, where they don’t belong. At a dark techno club, they meet Jesco (Dennis Mojen). He is a couple of years older, finally they have a ride.
Togeher they go on a roadtrip that confronts C. and Nike with their fears and dreams, puts their friendship to the test and their lives at risk.
