It's the 1960s, and Romano (Gigi Savoia) and his family immigrate from Italy to Germany to start a better life. The family opens a pizzeria and, over the next decade, prospers. Romano's sons, Gigi (Barnaby Metschurat) and Giancarlo (Moritz Bleibtreu), are expected to take over the business, but they don't want to. Gigi prefers to make movies, while Giancarlo is busy getting into trouble. Their relationship grows tense when they both fall in love with the same woman.
