Part of our Rising Star strand

When the old Godfather of Vienna's Ottakring district unexpectedly dies it is left to slacker Sammy to carry out his wishes. Sammy's life is thrown into further chaos when business student Valerie turns up hoping to put her theories to the test. With romance blossoming they work together to set up an economic system where the residence of Ottakring can make a profit without the aid of the wicked credit broker, Jahn.

With a wild cast of characters and a wicked sense of humour this film is a brightly coloured romp through the weird and wonderful world created by Director Michi Riebl, who isn’t shy about blending his comic book visual style with a more meaningful social commentary.
