After an economical and societal collapse, anarchy rules the streets of Berlin in the near future. But the reckless outlaws Tan and Javid couldn’t care less about what’s happening around them. They have only one goal for the rest of their hopeless lives: to find Winter, the leader of the underground fascist organization responsible for the murder of both Tan and Javid’s families. Their hunt for Winter gets unexpectedly twisted as Tan’s petty snack bar quarrel with the chef over the taste of a kebab escalates into a full blown shoot-out in which they accidentally and unknowingly kill the parents of Eliana. Abandoned by the powerless police, Eliana hires bizarre bounty hunters to assassinate Tan and Javid – who are unaware that they have become the targets of a personal vendetta themselves. That is until one day they find a mysterious screenplay which not only tells Eliana’s and their own recent history, but also seems to foresee the future in meticulous detail: The script is called Snowflake.

All hell breaks loose as everything unfolds exactly like it is written in the wicked story and Tan and Javid are hunted down by Polish cannibals, a blind contract killer, the self-made superhero Hyper Electro Man and supposedly even God himself. And so they desperately try to break out of the outrageous plot, which has them inevitably closing in on a catastrophic climax. When Eliana’s hired hit men all fail to do their job, she decides to take matters into her own hands and sets up an elaborate trap for her adversaries. But meanwhile Tan and Javid have found the writer of the screenplay, a clueless dentist, and force him to rewrite the ending…
