SUN. NOV. 9, 2014 – 3.00 PM – US PREMIERE

Directed by Klaus Wirbitzky – 90 minutes

The story of two boys coming from different social backgrounds: the sensitive loner Joschi (Moritz Glaser) who had to move with his father from a better district after his parents’ separation, and Niko (Lukas Mrowietz), 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 (Udo Kier) 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.
