Summer in Dortmund. Paul has been a first-semester medical student for a number of years now. His job as a casual dealer for Ingo and his younger half-brother Super is getting too hot for him. The two brothers then make him a lucrative offer: a consignment of synthetic drugs has to be taken to Brussels. Paul is forced to accept the assignment - and also secretly samples a bit, which lands him directly in the hospital.

When he wakes up the next day, the night nurse has already notified his father, Willi. He thinks it must be heroine and goes wild. Willi decides to take his son back home to the family farm. To prove he's up to scratch, the son has to learn a love story novel by heart. Not until the can recite the story word for word will Willi let him go.
