Men have a vulnerable side, but some men show it more than others.
Bruno is an asshole, a real scumbag, who takes a very straightforward approach to things: men are men; women are women; America is a land of liberty. He fancies himself an American-style cop, eating at a diner, downing bourbon, and enjoying himself at a strip club. For his beat on the outskirts of Berlin, Bruno is assigned a new partner, Mark, who likes musicals, makeup, and glittery dresses. Two things Mark doesn't like are being a policeman and Bruno. But put together, the two men have the ideal prerequisites for solving the murder of a drag queen.
The screening will include the two first episodes of the series.
