Pessimistic Jakob Fabian (Schilling) ekes out a meager living as a copywriter by day. At night, he drifts through the underbelly of Berlin with his wealthy friend Labude (Schuch). After meeting the aspiring actress Cornelia (Rosendahl), Fabian quickly falls in love. But, unfortunately, his happiness is short-lived. Losing his job  just as Cornelia’s career takes off with the help of her all-too attentive employer, Fabian plunges back into depression. But in the twilight of the Weimar era, it’s not just Fabian’s world that is falling apart… Award-winning director Dominik Graf captivated audiences at the Berlin Film Festival with this dazzling adaptation of Erich Kästner’s classic of Weimar literature.
