The German producer Peter Rommel produces his first feature film « Lost Killers » in 2000 (Cannes Festival – Un Certain Regard). In 2003 he receives a price at San Sebastian Film Festival for his adaptation « Schussangst » from the novel by Dirk Kurbjuweit. « Der Mann von der Botschaft » (2006) is also awarded (Locarno Festival, Mar del Plata festival).

Guram, an unemployed actor and looser is suddenly confronted with his 15-years old daughter whom he hasn’t seen for 10 years. He desperately pretends to be a rich man with a successful life. But his daughter isn’t that stupid.
