In the hope of solving his financial difficulties, Balz Näf (53), a German teacher living in the town of Baden in Switzerland, comes up with the idea to use streakers for sport-betting. Although he and his team help streaking achieve a new trend-sport status, his financial situation remains unchanged. On the contrary. He falls in love with the police commissioner who has been hired to stop him. In the end there is only one way out: He has to be a man’s man and get on the field himself.
Presented in collaboration with the Consulate General of Switzerland in San Francisco.
With the support of the United Swiss Societies of Northern California Cultural Committee.
