Nightlife in Berlin is the backdrop for this psychological drama about love, desire, obsession, fear and the lust for life. Young reporter Natasha (Jasmin Tabatabai) lives with Gary (Richy Müller), a sensitive artist who runs a club called "Risk." They are great partners except for the fact that they don't have sex. Gary's dream is to have Natasha sing in his club, but she is not ready. One day, Natasha meets an attractive boxer, Sugar (Gregor Törzs) who is training for a comeback. The two begin to have an affair. Meanwhile Gary, who is dying from a brain tumor, deliberately falls from a diving board into an empty pool and later dies in Natasha's arms. Finally, Natasha stands on the stage of Gary's club and sings. Grieg was screened as part of the Panorama section of the 49th International Berlin Film Festival, 1999.
