This trip is difficult to explain in words. Literally! This film follows two Berlin friends on their trip to Japan. But there is only one rule: they must keep complete silence for the next two weeks.


Guidedoc Special Premiere

#Nippoff. A curious trip from Berlin to Japan

This film follows Kay & Nils, two talky Berlin friends, on the adventure journey of their lives. From Berlin to Ishigaki, Osaka, Kyoto, Hakone and Tokyo. 

A tour throughout Japan, where both men have to forgo one of their most important tools – to speak! 14 days, 24 hours per day of no verbal communication.

What does that do to your own personality? How does such a social experiment affect the mutual friendship, but above all, as Nils and Kay asked themselves, who are
we without our words?
