Alex Gaul is a talented actor whose big chance is finally about to come! At least that’s what he thinks. For the time being, he earns his money with roles in cheap porn films, but in real life, he hasn’t got a clue! One day, he manages to sneak onto the set of a big TV production, where he is mistaken for the local film star Zacharias Zucker, the resemblance really is uncanny. Seizing the opportunity, he takes fate by the hand and knocks out the disgusting, misanthropist Zucker, taking over his role. During the shoot, the totally overwhelmed Alex has to do more absurd and reckless actions in order not to blow his cover. And he has to keep up his role in a porn movie at the same time, which doesn’t make things easier! More and more he becomes caught up between the coked-up and kinky sets and soon starts to really resemble the nasty TV star Zucker. When he finally has to decide between the blooming love towards the housemaid Yve and a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity, he makes a decision that changes everything...

A comedy which makes fun of filmmaking, the German feel-good-film-tradition, the porn industry and the people behind the scenes.
