The Kids Turned Out Fine

"The Kids Turned Out Fine" follows Generation Y characters as they chase the desire for radical self-realization.

The loosely connected episodes tell within one weekend about ...
... two rival amateur rap groups whose master plan is to make flashy music videos to ensure a promising career.
... a taciturn, lonely model who produces her fashion collection with iron toughness.
... two best friends who pretend to be climate activists in order to make money, which they in turn spend on irrelevant activities to somehow keep themselves happy.
... an influencer who gets lost in his success-oriented thinking.
... and three old men who philosophize about conspiracy theories in a backyard.
Every night they hear a loud banging on the streets of Cologne - the government, the upper elite must have their fingers in the mix. Are they threatened by the imminent apocalypse?
