Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 02/2020

Vincent, a struggling art thief and failed artist, has stolen Malewitsch’s legendary abstract painting, 'Black Square'. The sale to a Russian oligarch and his art expert, Martha, is set to take place on a cruise ship. When Vincent and his younger partner, Nils, realize their accomplice with the tickets and fake ID's is a no-show, they desperately overpower two men to sneak their way aboard. To their horror they quickly learn their victims are part of the cruise's entertainment and are forced to become David Bowie and Elvis Presley doubles – with varying degrees of success! But it's not long before some of the crew discover their true identities and the value of their loot. A wild goose chase for the 'Black Square' now breaks loose on the high seas.
