"You have dropped out of law school? What have you done in the last two years?" - "I was thinking". Niko is a loveable slacker from Berlin. While searching for plain drip coffee, Niko is wandering through the city and has quaint conversations with the people he meets along the way. But one day everything changes: His relationship ends, his father cuts off his allowance and a psychiatrist confirms his 'emotional imbalance'. Niko has to face the consequences of his inaction. Meanwhile, a peculiar beauty from his past confronts him with the emotional wounds he inflicted, his neighbor tries to make friends with him, but all Niko actually wants is a decent cup of coffee.
OH BOY is a fleet-footed, smart, silly and satirical comedy with an unexpected happy ending:  a large cup of coffee.
