Kings of Evergreen

Kings of Evergreen

Years have passed since Ted White, who is really called Winfried Weiden, had success as a pop singer. Back then, he appeared with his former partner Rigobert Kanofski as the "Duke Brothers", but quarrels about money and artistic development led to their separation. Rigobert became the life and soul of the party called Robby Kane, Ted remained true to himself and continued singing sentimental love songs. These also reflect his private feelings, for he still mourns his one great love Anna. Ted's evergreens are "out of time", so he even loses the job as an entertainer in an old people's home. He senses the chance for his big comeback after he hears about a big German tour being organized by the dodgy manager Lennie Weiss. But Lennie is very reluctant to take him on the tour and, in the end, Ted has to also drive the troupe's bus to be able to come along.
