Lammbock (Lammbock - Alles in Handarbeit)

Lammbock

"Take a drag first" - that's the motto of the best friends Stefan and Kai when they start talking about life's great topics, like women, the future, and their favorite football player Mehmet Scholl. So that others don't go hungry, they set up a pizzeria called Lammbock. When their customers order a pizza under the code word "pizza gourmet", they expect to receive one of the finest cannabis products available on short order - home grown, of course. While Kai is satisfied with his lifestyle, Stefan has his doubts if their debates about style, coolness, and "God and the world" are enough in life. As a long-time student and son of a judge, he feels obligated to make something of himself. But everything goes awry when their new friend and cannabis-expert Achim turns out to be an undercover narcotics officer. Suddenly, Kai and Stefan have only one option - and this could mean the end of their time together at Lammbock and the end of their friendship ...
