Fatih Akin (Head On, Soul Kitchen) turns his directorial skills to a new kind of story with Tschick, an adaptation of a best-selling young adult novel by Wolfgang Herrndorf. With his Mum in rehab and his Dad away with his assistant on a "business trip," 14-year-old outsider Maik is spending the summer alone by the pool at his parents' villa. Things couldn’t get any more boring. Until his new Russian classmate Tschick shows up, with a stolen Lada.

Fatih Akin returns to form with a bang in this charming wistful road trip movie with great performances, based on a German bestselling novel.
