A romantic East/West 1980s romantic teen comedy.
Bremen, 1985. The 19 year old West German teen Tim (Tobias Schenke) is an upcoming tennis professional and "on top of the world".  Popular with girls, he is in love with himself and his perfect top-spin.  During a high-school field trip into communist East Germany he meets his twin brother, Ronnie, who knocks him out and takes his identity to return back to the west instead of Tim.  Tim is stuck in the east where nobody believes he is not Ronnie.  Now he sees himself confronted with skinny dipping and blues hippies. Tim wants to escape, but escaping from East Germany is anything but easy.  When Tim meets Jana (Anna Brüggemann), the grey east suddenly gets colorful.  He finds out that happiness means something else than having the perfect underware with your Lacoste shirt of the day in your closet.
