Joachim and Franco are standing on a cliff in Norway at midnight, watching the sun set. But instead of disappearing behind the horizon, the sun rises again. Both men have reached their destination, and now it is time to return back home. But they have a long road ahead of them, over 3,000 kilometers, and not much in common. There is tension in the air, but they will have to put up with each other for a while.

Joachim is a young, somewhat stiff scientist who is on a journey to fulfill his deceased father's dream. During the journey, he learns a lot about himself and his much-hated but also much-respected father. Franco, on the other hand, is a fiery-tempered Italian who hates nothing more than "good advice", particularly when it has to do with his status as a father. So the "bad son" and the "bad father" make their way through thick and thin. The trip back to Hamburg gives them the chance to find themselves and to become good friends.
