Berlin, in the middle of Kreuzberg: Lotte, new girl in town, exceptionally clumsy, wonderfully self-deprecating, averagely talented but crushing hard on Vincent of Green Gherkins. Which is probably not his name. Anyway, she has a crush on the guy who always shows up at the kiosk opposite her house on Mondays, buying exactly ten green jelly gherkins. 

A story about what is really important: the right city, the right guy and the right kind of wine gums.
