The coming wheeler-dealer Jaecki Zucker is up to his neck in trouble - his wife wants a divorce, the court bailiff is threatening him with jail. The only hope left for the former GDR sports reporter is his mother´s inheritance. However, in her will she stipulated that Jaecki must reconcile the differences with his brother Samuel, an orthodox Jew, in order to inherit. As Samuel and his entire clan move into Jaecki´s chaotic household, the clash of civilisations is inevitable. But the two stubborn brothers have no choice - they have to sort things out.
