In a way, Hoffi and Lehmi, two punk rockers from Dortmund, had only wanted to see an Irish show, their first ever. But after drinking a lot of beer, they end up driving corpses around without knowing where the morgue is.
"A true story which happened a few years ago in Dortmund, and the real Hoffi and Lehmi had drunk much, much more..." (M. Lehmann).
