In Schrofhausen, entertainer Ricky Sokatoni is a star already. But his sister and manager, Tanja Freitag, has even greater plans for him. Together they will conquer the big world of showbiz! Even Ricky’s beloved mother, herself a TV starlet of the 90s, knew it: there is something very special about Ricky. And to the dead, nothing must be denied. Ricky knows that, too. So he allows himself to be talked into a big, supposedly dazzling tour, despite the worst of stage fever. But are the small stages of the Bavarian village landscape really the right place for him?
Between the Ballermann queen, ever-increasing egos and Tanja’s shakily constructed lies, the two mercilessly fall on their faces. And the deceased mother turns over in her grave.
