Kiss Me!

Kiss Me!

One evening, the 29-year-old subway driver Louise Stoer and her husband Hermann accidentally witness a passer-by being beaten up on the street. After the initial moment of shock and a brief quarrel with her husband, Louise intervenes courageously. Hermann who - as so often - has his video camera with him, shoots the whole scene. Together, they are able to prevent the worst from happening and drive off the attack. The two are "heroes", or so they think. Louise is not the only one to see the chance of selling their story to the media. Hermann quickly takes up the challenge. For both of them, the whole affair comes in handy anyway, for their relationship has seen better days. They have a definite goal: becoming famous, but each for himself and without the other!
