Fear and loathing in the Moselle Valley.

What to do with the windfall? – When his father dies, bohemian bartender Meise takes the unexpected inheritance and embarks on a journey. The plan? Spend, not save. He swore to himself he would do it all differently than his father. But, after road-tripping across America and partying all over Europe, he doesn’t seem to fit back into his old life in Berlin.

So, with the remaining money he sets out on one last trip: to a vineyard in rural West Germany. There he is confronted with a culture shock unlike any other and is forced to ask himself the questions about his own life he's been trying to avoid.

Tragic yet entertaining, with acute observations and no shortage of black humor, Nagelschmidt allows his (anti)hero to fail – by his own hand or others’ is up to the reader to decide.
