Boris returns to his small hometown in the south of Germany, having built a career as a lawyer in Hollywood. Along with him arrives his model girlfriend Rebecca. Sandrine and Ulf, Boris' best friends from high school, invite them to stay at their home. The microcosm of a small town is suddenly confronted by the glittering world of the rich and beautiful. In the course of events, Boris discloses a surprising plan: he feels homesick and wants to return to small town life. But what is his real agenda?
