Writer/director Twyker reunites with Potente, the star of his breakthrough feature "Run Lola Run." Potente plays Sissi, a mental institution nurse whose life is saved by small-time crook Bodo (Furmann). On the way to the bank (which he was about to rob), she is run over by a truck (in an accident that he helped cause). He crawls under the truck to avoid the police, but ends up saving her as she's about to choke to death on her own blood. After she recovers, she sets out to find Bodo, feeling that he is her one true love. Bodo, still grieving the loss of his wife, resists. Impossible to pigeonhole in one genre, as Twyker is clearly more concerned with his characters than with shoving them into a conveniently labeled plot.
