Cowboy considers himself to be a prodigious director and comes to Berlin in order to revolutionize the city's independent scene with his masterpiece "Acht Fäuste gegen Berlin". Yet the road to success is long-winded, since Cowboy desperately needs funding and therefore takes on every directing job he can get. But whatever project he tries to tackle, nothing seems to work despite his ambitions. Soon he meets self-declared artist Yps, with whom he not only falls in love, but also starts making an art-porn movie. But what first appears to be Cowboy's big break turns out to be his greatest challenge – both professional and personal.
