Rocking the provinces: a lookalike farce with Sebastian Bezzel in a double role. Shy farmer Sven and haggard rock star Alexander Gromberg have little in common – apart from a striking resemblance. Gromberg is a heavy drinker, which is jeopardizing his comeback. Sven is a faithful soul who works hard on his parents' farm and has long buried his own dreams of playing in a band. When Gromberg's manager Franzi (Susanne Bormann) suddenly needs a sober version of the star to get the record company's Go for his comeback tour, she summarily hires the lookalike. Sven is restyled as a rockstar. But can the deception work?
