Der Sieger in Dir

Feature Film | DE 2012 | 61' | OV

Michael leads an ordinary, humble life with his girlfriend Vera. One day, he meets a homeless man whom he recognizes to be his old schoolmate, Niko. He takes him in and gets him an internship at his insurance company. However, traumatic memories resurface when Niko ridicules him at a company party in front of all their fellow employees, while, in his own home, Michael cannot help but realize that Niko and Vera are bonding ever closer. Glimpses at a diary from school days reveal that Niko used to be Michael’s worst nightmare, the guy who bullied and humiliated him. Michael’s attempt to talk it over with his house guest prompts an emotional response and an apology from Niko. After the two of them spend a boozy night together, nothing seems to stand in the way of friendship any longer – still, the old nightmare starts all over again.
