Summary

A feature-length debut. A film about a prisoner named Micki's life-long love for the musical star Karin. In order to get to know her he decides to attend an audition for a new musical and escapes from prison. He becomes a member of the ensemble and begins to get to know Karin. But she's dating the project's sponsor Oskar. Before opening night the police find out about Micki's whereabouts and try to catch him. (The film's title is based on the prison drink.)
