The perfect plan: a survival artist and an unsuccessful actress sneak into a training program for job seekers as fake course instructors to secretly make a film - based on Goethe's "Faust". But their unsuspecting "main characters" don't make life easy for them: a resolute Swabian woman, a Saxon with a secret, a hippie esoteric, a Turkish academic, a taciturn emo girl and a Portuguese farmer who doesn't speak German and has ended up in the wrong course. Chaos quickly breaks out. Friendships grow. And love ignites.
