Fickende Fische | director Almut Getto. A fish and Nina’s inability to brake on her inline skates bring Jan and Nina together abruptly. Jan is 16, shy and a loner. His passion is the underwater world into which he would love to submerge to forget his disease and to shake off his overprotective mother. Jens’s only confidant is his grandfather, who appreciates the adventurousness of life and who is the only family member who has not become ill-humored.
Nina is different: She is cheeky, spontaneous and stands on her own feet. Her mother has disappeared to distant Kenya, and she cannot count on her father and her brother. Only her friend Angel, a woman in her mid-fifties, who keeps her head above water by selling erotic toys, listens to her. Both have more in common than it appears at first glance.
Together Nina and Jan break out of their everyday life and enjoy life to the full. They are searching for their paradise and they know: It is dark, quiet and full of fishes. To find an answer to the burning question whether fishes really have sex Nina and Jan secretly spend the night in the aquarium – with undreamed of consequences. Their little paradise is threatened – by the restrictive world of the adults, misunderstandings, insecurity and by a reality no longer to be repressed: Jan is infected with the HIV-Virus.
