Both Christian and communist ideologies are lampooned in this comedy satire. Josef (Jorg Pose) is a bigoted party official who is sent to a clinic to recover from tuberculosis. His picture of Stalin is contrasted by his roommate's picture of Jesus. The odd couple's beliefs clash, with Josef calling a party meeting and his counterpart (Manfred Mock) calling a prayer meeting of the religious faithful. After many clashes, the two discover they are not that different and become friends.
