The world of the Labaule publishing family has unraveled. When the patriarch of the clan dies, his second son, Wolfram, unexpectedly becomes heir to a newspaper empire built over generations. Until now, however, Wolfram, who has mainly been a husband, father to two grown children, bon vivant, professional son and perennial board member of a singing club, has never set foot in the publishing house. The alternative imagined by his mother, who has flown in from Uruguay just in time for the reading of the will, namely to sell the company to a tabloid competitor, is not something Wolfram can agree to. He thus has no choice but to summon all his courage, button up his baby alpaca suit jacket, and move forward. But where is "forward" in the German publishing universe?

Zu diesem Film kann rechtzeitig zum Filmfest mit Hilfe der App GRETA eine Audiodeskriptions-Fassung für Sehgeschädigte sowie Untertitel für Hörgeschädigte auf dem eigenen Device geladen werden.
