Two brothers, Uwe (Uwe Ochsenknecht) and Gustav (Gustav-Peter Wöhler), decide to escape their midlife crises by traveling to Japan in order to experience life in a Buddhist monastery. Upon their arrival in Tokyo, however, they not only lose their way but also all their possessions. Ironically, getting lost will mark the beginning of their journey back to themselves.
