In yet another salty Herbert Achternbusch interpretation of life, sex, and politics, the prolific director relies on long monologues and visual references to the infamous 1936 Olympics in Berlin and to Nazi concentration camps in order to put across a story involving his father (played by the director himself) and his mother, who was a sports instructor during the time of the Olympics (the year when Achternbusch was conceived). In reality, the film is not so much a story, as a platform for Achternbusch's stand-up routines.
