Synopsis

With the arrival of twins, the Blaschke family grows from four to six and they don't really fit into their "Trabi" anymore. To solve the problem, father Hannes acquires a used official limousine.

 

After the family is repeatedly mistaken for important politicians, Hannes' newfound status begins to go to his head. His colleagues come up with a plan to take him down a notch or two.
