In his late 30s, Jakob (Wotan Wilke Möhring) has a pretty good chance of ending up back at his parents': his chosen profession as Elvis imitator isn't making him rich, in fact quite the opposite... Then his 12-year old daughter Mai (of whose existence Jakob knows nothing) turns up out of the blue and wants to get to know her Dad. In reality, the spoilt brat just wants to get back at her mother (Julia Koschitz) and turns Jakob's already chaotic world upside down. Her timing is lousy too, as Jakob has just taken on a job driving a ram to Norway in a ramshackle old box van. Jakob has no choice but to take Mai with him... Thus begins a turbulent road trip for father and daughter, accompanied by a cranky, stinky, yet highly musical sheep.
