Synopsis: When not messing with the destitute in seamy nightclubs and grimy shelters, Sebastian whiles away the hours meeting dates via the Internet, then surreptitiously photographing their crotches under the table. One day his cruel pranks cross the line: the smug brat decides to drag a sleeping drunk - aggressive poète maudit Kallmann (Paulus Manker) - into the trunk of his car and drive him over the border into a remote corner of the Czech Republic, abandoning him there alone and ignorant of the language. As the belligerent Kallmann tries to find his way back to Vienna, he inadvertently endures a long, dark journey of the soul, punctuated by surreal comic moments. Sebastian’s brutish behaviour, meanwhile, costs him the respect of his latest flame, the talkative teacher Pia (Pia Hierzegger). Soon enough, these characters find themselves in geographic and emotional landscapes well beyond their imagination.
