Brothers Christian (43) and Georg (45) have not seen each other for 20 years. They finally cross paths at their fathers funeral, of all places. At first, their radio silence continues. Carpenter Georg cared for their father until his death and manager Christian has not been seen back home for years. But after a booze-fueled wake, the tension between the two of them eases and the brothers drunkenly decide to realize their boyhood dream of driving across Germany on their mopeds. And so begins a journey full of exciting highs and comically dramatic lows. A journey that allows the two brothers to reconnect and leads them to a turning point in their lives.
