The capitalistic yuppie Till and the leftist activist, half-French Sydelia are both fighting for their beliefs. While Till has just become boss of his own intern consulting company and is filling a lucrative market niche, Sydelia decides to free him from the capitalist world by revolutionary means. But could these two opposites really become attracted to one another? The battle between true ideals and absolute love is on. The tip of the iceberg is to be a country-wide general intern strike, one that will cripple the country.

Resist! Intern Rebellion is an entertaining, headstrong, revolutionary unpolitical romantic comedy in the times of “generation intern”.
