Gero (39) lives in a terraced house in the Swabian countryside with his wife, his mother and two children. He is human resources manager with an automobile manufacturer, has a basement hobby room and sex with men. His wife Claudia (28) is a housewife and mother. She knows everything about Gero but does not talk with him about it. She works out hard in a gym to remain attractive for her husband. However, they have not had sex for almost two years. Both are aware that Gero cannot live another life: he is a devoted father of a family and a bisexual man in drag. The marriage seems to break up because of this paradox.
