The young, successful musician Jim (Oliver Konietzny) is summoned to the record office in his home town of Hanover to be told some stunning news:  he is in fact Turkish, which means his German papers are invalid. Jim thinks there must be some mistake and begins an ever more absurd odyssey through the German bureaucracy. Finally, he decides to get himself Turkish papers from the consulate and then become German again. To do that, however, he has to find his Turkish father Mustafa (Vedat Erincin). But he abandoned Jim's mother Ingrid (Nina Petri) when his son was just a baby.
