While his mother is in rehab and his father on a "business trip" with his assistant, 14-year-old outsider Maik Klingenberg spends his time during the summer holidays alone by the pool of his parents' villa. But then Tschick (portrayed by newcomer Anand Batbileg in his screen acting debut) appears. In fact, Tschick's real name is Andrej Tschichatschow, and he comes from Berlin. He has a stolen Lada with him, and the two youngsters set off on an unforgettable roadtrip through provincial Germany.

Marketing strategies:
Based on the best-selling cult novel by the late author Wolfgang Herrndorf, Why We Took the Car, which was one of the biggest literary successes in Germany of recent years and has been published in more than 30 countries.
