Drifter is a documentary film by Sebastian Heidinger from 2007. The film was released in 2009.


Sebastian Heidinger accompanied three young people - Aileen (16), Angel (23) and Daniel (25) - through their everyday heroin addiction in Berlin. In the area around the Bahnhof Zoo they are fighting for their survival, which is only ensured with a sufficient amount of the drug . Although they have to get the money for it every day, mainly through prostitution , in order to numb their anger and disgust, they have kept their dreams and longings. But they realize that they all begin with withdrawal and letting go of the drug.


“From rather associative, emphatically distant and emotionless chains of events, from odd jobs to fundraising for the daily 'shot' to the question of overnight stays every evening, a dramaturgically condensed daily routine results, which reveals the relationships within the triangular purpose community. A realistic, dense redefinition of the 'Children from Bahnhof Zoo' despite all the detachment. "
