The relationship between two women living in contemporary Berlin sets the stage for director Andreas Dresen's low-key look at urban existence. Nike (Nadja Uhl) and Katrin (Inka Friedrich) live a quiet life, often simply enjoying each other's company while perched on Nike's second-story balcony. When Nike's tenuous relationship with truck driver Ronald (Andreas Schmidt) goes sour, and an attempted rape results in a psychological collapse for Katrin, Katrin's son Max (Vincent Redetzki) quietly observes the tender relationship between the two women before inadvertently complicating their lives when his planned seduction of a friend from school goes awry.
