Oskar is the owner of a run-down music club in the Hamburg nightlife district. He loves his life just the way it is: Lots of girls, great friends and one long non-stop party. Except for this New Year’s Eve: While everyone’s having a ball, Oskar has to shut down his bankrupt club. Then he has to contend with an angry, violent ex-pimp in his apartment demanding money, his best friend being broken by fame, once-buoyant Nina now painting everything black, the police chief and a dead Elvis are coming for the club, and in the midst of it all, there’s the love of his life: Mathilda, Mathilda, Mathilda.
