What Amélie was to Paris, so Cleo is for Berlin. Cleo lives a lonely life in the German capital, trudging through her days at work at the tourist office while mired in self-loathing about the death of her father. What she really wants for her life is a clock which could turn back time and rewrite her family story - something which became possible when a treasure hunter arrives, promising that grail with stories about a treasure of notorious master criminals, the Sass Brothers. A big-city fairytale full of wit and bizarre supporting characters from the past, it’s romantic, playful, and, at the same time, a love letter to Berlin.
