West Germany 1982: Hubertus and Sebastian don’t want to end up like their fathers, ever. Music and their shared love for punk princess Debbie are the only way to escape the foul smell of polishing wax and bourgeois self-pride. When a cool rockabilly band is looking for a support act to their upcoming tour, it’s obvious: This is their one and only chance to get away from middle-class life with all its rules and constraints! But Hubertus’ father leaves nothing untried to stop his son’s musical aspirations. As they are invited to an audition, the situation is about to explode.
