Storyline

Bike-messenger Josef 'Jojo' Reithmayer fosters a rich though sordid fantasy life, imagining the most adolescent scenarios for those whose messages he delivers. His life gets seriously problematic when he breaks a cardinal rule by allowing one customer to tamper with another customer's delivery, leading to his loss of innocence in more ways than one.
