Some adore the beauty of Northern Germany, others die of boredom and just want out. Ever cheerful Fuchs (Peter Jordan) is a government inspector who checks takeaway restaurants. Tillmann (Axel Prahl) didn’t make it abroad and has returned to Dithmarschen a depressed alcoholic. Fuchs dreams of a relocation to Hamburg. He senses an opportunity to prove his worth when misanthrope Tillmann is assigned as his colleague. A classic buddy movie on a tour de force through East Frisia’s gastronomy.
