As a present to himself on his 14th birthday, Lukas, a solitary misfit, absconds from home for three days and roams the streets of Munich, experiencing his hometown in a very special, very intense way.
The very first day, he gets to know Lissy and Ringo, two dropouts dreaming of founding a commune in Marocco, who invite him to join them, and Sonja, a self-confident and blind young woman of 17 who knows exactly what she wants from life. Lukas falls in love with her and in the course of three days learns how to approach her with awareness and sensitivity. The story of her life and her way of dealing with life touch and impress Lukas to the extent that his little trip takes a new direction – and attains a goal. The blind girl opens his eyes to life and to himself.
