Directed by Marc Rothermund, Oscar nominee for 'Sophie Scholl', this emotional comedy, based on a true story, tells the story of Saliya Kahawatte, a young teenager who, despite losing his sight, does not give up on his dreams. Saliya, played by Kostja Ullmann ('Single by Contract'), wants to work in a five-star hotel. To achieve his dream, he doesn't say that he doesn't see and obtain an apprentice position in a luxury establishment. Thanks to the support of his best friend Max (Jacob Matschenz), the main character overcomes the numerous obstacles he encounters, without revealing that he has lost his sight. However, everything falls apart when Saliya falls in love with Laura (Anna Maria Mühe).
