The actor Otto Kullberg (Henry Hübchen) is a man women love and men like. Sometimes he drinks a little too much. When his excessive drinking leads him to miss a day on the set of his new film and it seems like he’s about to blow the whole thing, a younger actor (Markus Hering) is hired to shoot all the scenes a second time as a backup solution: Leo the producer is not willing to lose any money.
