Georg Weiser knows what he wants from life: a refrigerator full of beer. An amazing flat-screen TV with even more amazing surround sound. When his wife passes on, he's able to fulfill all these simple wishes. If only the kids, Susanne and Gerd, wouldn't bother him. Who needs affection or squabbling when there's a chance to have peace and quiet? But happiness… that could be something different. And something that Gisela Rückert, his new acquaintance, still believes in.
