After a seminar in the alternative community "Center for Inner and Outer Peace" (CIOP) Johanna (Kirsten Sprick) tells her boyfriend Boris (Frank Thomé) that she wants to leave her present life and move to Switzerland with CIOP. Her timing is doubly unfortunate, however, as Boris was about to propose to her and the World Cup Final has just started. To cap it all, visitors arrive: a friend of Boris' wants to watch the final with them and a completely stressed-out neighbour turns up as well. When two members of CIOP also unexpectedly appear, chaos reigns. Ein Endspiel is an intelligent black comedy based entirely on improvisation and was created in cooperation with the Hamburg improv theatre group Hidden Shakespeare.
