One day while on a drive, Philipp (Benno Fürmann) becomes involved in a fight with his fiancée, Katja (Antje Westermann). While he is distracted, he runs into a boy. Instead of stopping, he continues home. Although the couple momentarily salvages their rocky relationship, the boy dies.

They begin a relationship that lasts until the truth is revealed. Wolfsburg was screened at the Berlin Film Festival.
