'My Name is Victoria' pulls viewers into a unique adventure. In a single take, a group of would-be tough guys and a young Spanish woman wind their way through a long Berlin night. The following story is told in a single, uninterrupted take, condensed into a frenzied real-time event: lost in her own world, the young Spaniard Victoria dances through trendy Berlin nightclubs. In front of one club, she meets four guys who introduce themselves as Sonne, Boxer, Blinker and Fuss. They quickly start chatting. Sonne and Victoria are interested in one another and leave the group the first chance they get. But their tender flirtation is abruptly interrupted by Sonne’s mates. For them, the night is far from over.
