This German drama is set in the rural town of Coburg where a 20-year old insurance-company worker secretly manipulates the system to help those in danger of losing their benefits. When not working, the fellow enjoys hang-gliding and dreams of soaring off Bolivia's Mount Palomani to set a world record by gliding all the way across the jungle to Ixiamas. When others learn of his dream, they begin raising money to help him live out his daring dream. Once they do, the fellow is left with no choice but to try it. Will he succeed?
