Robert (Alfred Dorfer) teaches music in high school, and is a somewhat ineffectual character. While he is loved by his wife, Doris (Andrea Eckert), no one considers him capable of much. His son even calls him a "dork." He takes his wife with him on vacation to sunny Italy but misses the rains in hometown Vienna, so they take the train back to Austria. Robert has a high-school friend, Roland (Lukas Resetarits), who has become a successful popular musician despite being fairly untalented. While Robert and his wife are journeying back to Vienna, they decide to go to one of Roland's concerts. When Robert gets them invited by the celebrity to a post-concert bash, he begins to seem less like a loser, which causes him all kinds of trouble.
