A story is about two boys coming from different social backgrounds: there is the sensitive loner Joschi who had to move here with his father from a better district after his parents’ separation. And then, we have Niko, full of bravado, whose family came to Germany from Kazakhstan, staying out of the way of his drunken father.”

In the neighborhood cinema, the two friends secretly idolize the figure of a vampire up on the screen. In a magical twist, Count Karpatovicz steps out of the screen to help the boys realize Niko’s sister Tatjana’s dream of escaping from the confines of the rundown tenement to become a boxing champion.
