Spoiled 30-something Lenny is living the fast life when his doctor father attempts to ground him by enlisting him as a bigger brother figure to one of his patients, 15-year-old David, who is suffering from a heart disease and struggling to make friends. Unable to conceal his horror, Lenny ultimately agrees to meet and finds out that the fragile David has quite a long list of things he’d like to do, ‘just – in – case’. Reluctantly setting out to try to make David’s wish-list a reality, an unlikely bond forms between the two. This huge German box office hit gives German language students a contemporary tale based on a true story.
