Logline

BEER ROYAL

Franz Hofstetter is dead, and with him the last of the great patriarchs of the brewing industry is gone. Two women are competing to take over as head of the brewery. One is Franz's second wife, Gisela, whose heart beats for the traditional art of brewing as well as for a Czech gigolo. The other is Vicky, Franz's daughter from his first marriage, who returns from abroad with a basketball star and lots of ideas, such as vegan Weisswurst, that seem outlandish in small-town Bavaria. FILMFEST MÜNCHEN will show both parts of this two-part TV movie back-to-back in a three-hour presentation.
