Go For Zucker
Wheeler-dealer Jäeckie Zucker is up to his neck in trouble - his wife wants a divorce and the court bailiff is threatening him with jail.

The only hope left for the former GDR sports reporter is his mother's inheritance, but Mama Zuckerman's will stipulates that Jackie must reconcile with his brother Samuel, an orthodox Jew, before he can claim his share.

As Samuel and his entire clan move into Jaeckie's chaotic household, the clash of wills and temperaments between the two brothers escalates.
