A sensitive portrait of an exceptional character closely connected to Hamburg. Ulrich Tukur is a true all-rounder. He sings, plays piano and accordeon, writes and embodies baddies very persuasively. The 61-year old actor loves change, movement and restlessness. The film accompanies Tukur through Germany, France, Italy and Greece and takes a look at the person behind the showman. It comprehensively documents his origins, the stepping-stones of his career and his reflections on theatre.
