When ageing actor Otto Killberg has a few too many and misses a day of shooting, his producer double-casts his role. The rivalry between Otto and his replacement Arno Runge results in a web of intrigue on set, entangling more than just the two actors.
The film was inspired by a real scenario of double-casting that occurred during Kurt Maetzig’s DEFA film 'Schlösser und Katen' (1957).
