Keep Rollin’


Valentin is fed up! Being confined to a wheelchair after a snowboarding accident is bad enough, but being forced to participate in a theatre project for people with disabilities is... unthinkable! There is only one ray of hope – Mira – his beautiful carer. But there’s a problem: she’s going steady with a local slime-ball called Marc.

Out of frustration about himself and the world, Valentin decides to rob the gas station where Marc works. His house mates, Lukas and Titus, are all for it and offer their help. It is the beginning of a man-to-man friendship and an adventurous plan that may or may not be successful.

“Marvellous. Politically incorrect! A must-watch!”

NDR Kultur

“A magnificent, truthful film proves that inclusion isn’t just an emotive word, an UN convention. And again it becomes apparent: Humor is the key to open the most bulky door.”

Die Welt

Director’s note

“Our common motto — “Love your mistakes!” — serves therefore not only for the heroes of our film, but also for the whole crew both in front of and behind the camera.

Colleagues and coworkers that we always invite to let themselves be surprised by new, unexpected possibilities, and to have the “courage to take risks” in the adventure of film.”

“The film is terrific: funny, tender and with drive.”
