Scene from "U-900" (photo © Wiedemann & Berg Filmproduktion/Rolf von der Heydt)

Atze Schroeder knows what makes his customers on the black market happy. Otherwise, he and his buddy Samuel are keeping a low profile, waiting for the Americans to arrive – it is the year 1944 and World War II is not over yet. But before things get that far, the two pals get caught up in a mad adventure with the actress Maria; one that leaves even big-mouth Atze speechless: the Germans want to send their last available submarine, the U-900, on a secret mission from Toulon to Warnemuende. But when Atze gets into it with the responsible General, he and Samuel and Maria have to flee. The trio captures the U-900 and Atze pretends to be the legendary Lieutenant Commander Roenberg. Even though he has no clue about the high seas, Atze wouldn't be Atze if he didn’t have a solution to every problem. But the crew gets suspicious when their commander starts issuing unconventional orders...
