Horst is a young man who never got over his ex-girlfriend. He and his best friend Reza work as underground cleaners on the outskirts of Munich. Contrary to Horst, Reza is a dandy. To get girls, he is always switching identities: From architect to doctor to... Horstʼs life changes when he meets Claudia as she is running away from the subway guards while participating in a political protest. Horst and Reza help Claudia to escape. Claudia leaves Horst love struck. But how can he win her heart?

During a weekend at a country house, the activists plan a protest. They want to mark a turning point, turn the course of events, and change the world. In the middle of everything, Horst takes on a false identity. He becomes Memo, a Syrian who instigated the Arab revolution. They believe that this will stir up the Ecological Revolution in Germany.

But Memo has different worries. He has fallen in love with Claudia. And Claudia? She has a secret nobody knows...
