Several hilarious scenes are interspersed throughout this comedy featuring director and singer Udo Lindenberg as a pop singer who is kidnapped by a government agent. The agent hates his music -- he thinks it will lead the nation down the road to depravity. A detective (Lindenberg again) is soon on the case, and before all the low-end bars and clubs in Hamburg can be explored, the kidnapee escapes his captors while being transported over the North Sea in a plane. How this ends up as an accidental oratory to the nation at large is not another story at all -- just a continuation of the saga.
