Vincent, Marie and Alexander meet in a therapy centre for young adults. Vincent suffers from Tourette syndrome, Marie from anorexia, and Alexander from obsessive-compulsive orderliness. Without a care for possible consequences, they steal a car from their therapist Dr. Rose and set off for the coast of Italy. Before her death, Vincent promised his mother to scatter her ashes (which he conveniently carries in a candy tin) into the sea. From this point it's a road movie with Dr. Rose and Vincent's obnoxiously well-to-do father in hot pursuit. As a successful politician facing re-election, this father cannot risk adverse publicity, especially not due to his kid with the tic who has already been the cause of too many headaches in his young life.

"Set in the impoverished back alleys of Victorian London, The threepenny opera follows underworld antihero Mackie Messer (a.k.a. Mack the Knife) as he tries to woo Polly Peachum and elude the authorities. With a palpable evocation of corruption and dread, set to Weill's irresistible score, The threepenny opera remains a benchmark of early sound cinema." -- container.

Summer, 1954. The Soviet Union is sending its prisoners of war home. Among them is the father of a quiet, football-loving 11-year-old, Matthias, who lives with his mother, sister and brother in a West-German mining town. The boy has long found a surrogate father in the local football player Helmut Rahn, who has "adopted" Matthias as his mascot. The return of the boy's father Richard casts a shadow over the once-happy family: broken by his years in captivity, Richard has trouble adapting to life in post-war Germany and alienates his family through his severity. For Richard, football is pointless, and so is the World Cup that's about to be held in Bern, Switzerland. Matthias, however, longs to be there with his idol, who's been chosen to play on the German team. Through his passion for the game and his fighting spirit, Matthias rekindles a love of life in his dad's heart. And so, as the final match of the World Cup begins, a little miracle of love and generosity leaps across borders to help another miracle occur - the victory of Helmut Rahn and the German team, the miracle of Bern.
