Willkommen bei den Hartmanns
The recently retired teacher Angelika decides, against her skeptical husband Richard’s will, to take in a refugee. Soon afterward, the young Nigerian Diallo moves into the Hartmann home, and a whirlwind of complications ensue. These events not only disrupt the lives of Angelika and Richard’s adult children Philip and Sophie; they also put their own marriage as well as Diallo’s chances of integration to the test. Despite all the chaos, hope prevails that the family will recover its stability, confidence, and peace, like the rest of Germany.
After long years of estrangement, brothers Christian (43) and Georg (45) finally cross paths at their father’s funeral. A fist fight at the cemetery and a booze-fueled wake later, they drunkenly decide to realise 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.
A heart-warming comedy about two estranged brothers and their moped journey across Germany, from the Black Forest to the Baltic Sea, never faster than 25 km/h, but always full of sex, drugs & ping pong.
