When the financial crisis first hit the real estate elite of the gulf hundreds of luxury limousines were abandoned at Dubai airport. geheimagentur brought one of them to Berlin to give it away to the most improbable proposal for the future of the car. Starting over tells the story of the Improbability Drive and combines it with a passionate analyse of the modern regime of probability, as well as the quest to find escape routes, political and personal ones (like you need them as a single of 40something). It is also an experiment about the stage as a place, that allows us to start over and over again.

It includes a dialogue between children-wannabe-pirates and real pirates from somalia, an introduction to shipping art, a contemporary lovestory between a sailor and a siren, a call to the citizens of harbour cities to reclaim the sea and, of course, some amazing tattoos.
