A bull-headed Bavarian who just got released from prison wants to have his former life back. Achternbusch himself plays a filmmaker in a film he is making. He wants to win the hostess of an inn called “Zum Neger Erwin” for his planned production. In order to convince her for his film he claims that he is the famous filmmaker Herbert Achternbusch.
