Summer, 1954. The Soviet Union is sending its prisoners of war home. Among them is the father of a quiet, football-loving 11-year-old, Matthias, who lives with his mother, sister and brother in a West-German mining town. The boy has long found a surrogate father in the local football player Helmut Rahn, who has "adopted" Matthias as his mascot. The return of the boy's father Richard casts a shadow over the once-happy family: broken by his years in captivity, Richard has trouble adapting to life in post-war Germany and alienates his family through his severity. For Richard, football is pointless, and so is the World Cup that's about to be held in Bern, Switzerland. Matthias, however, longs to be there with his idol, who's been chosen to play on the German team. Through his passion for the game and his fighting spirit, Matthias rekindles a love of life in his dad's heart. And so, as the final match of the World Cup begins, a little miracle of love and generosity leaps across borders to help another miracle occur - the victory of Helmut Rahn and the German team, the miracle of Bern

Auf dem Höhepunkt seiner akademischen Karriere beschließt der verheiratete Soziologie-Professor Hanno Hackmann, die brisante Affäre mit seiner Studentin Babsi zu beenden. Nachdem er ein letztes Mal mit ihr geschlafen hat, sieht Hackmann sich plötzlich mit dem Vorwurf der sexuellen Nötigung konfrontiert. Dieses Gerücht ruft seinen Konkurrenten Bernie Weskamp auf den Plan, der zusammen mit der verbiesterten Frauenbeauftragten Dr. Ursula Wagner alles daran setzt, um Hackmann öffentlich bloßzustellen ... Nach 'Der bewegte Mann' und 'Das Superweib' verfilmte Erfolgsregisseur Sönke Wortmann bereits zum dritten Mal in Folge einen Bestseller - und landete erneut einen Volltreffer. So konnte er nicht nur die satirische Schärfe der Vorlage von Dietrich Schwanitz trefflich umsetzen, es gelang ihm zudem, in dieser ungewöhnlichen Uni-Komödie die Stilelemente eines Justiz-Thrillers mit grotesken und manchmal sogar tragischen Szenen zu vermengen. In der Rolle des unschuldig Verfolgten glänzt 'Rossini'-Star Heiner Lauterbach, Axel Milberg ('Nach fünf im Urwald') spielt seinen komplexbeladenen Gegner
