That's a wrap - Rebecca has been uncertain about what her future life should look like. On the one hand, she is on her way to becoming a teacher, and on the other hand, her passion for making films won’t let her go. When her new short film is accepted at a film festival, she and her team travel to Saarbrücken for the premiere. Once at the festival, however, it’s not just Rebecca who has to deal with her life’s dreams. Her ex-boyfriend and cinematographer Andie, as well as her cast, Robert and Saskia, also throw themselves into the festival life in order to land new jobs. Soon they realize that not everything in the festival bubble is glamour. Especially for Robert, networking is not easy, as he is forced to spend the night with film fan Ingo, who won’t leave his side and tries to find interested parties for his own script. Will there be a happy end or an early wrap?
