Somebody built a goddamn school gym directly over the stolen cash his girlfriend buried for him. And now, ex-con Zeki Müller has no choice but to pass himself off as a substitute teacher at Goethe Comprehensive School, thus providing the German educational system with one more problem, i.e. the craziest teacher of all time. At night, Zeki digs secretly for his loot: during the day, he uses drastic yet effective methods to bring the unruly kids of class 10B back on track. Although his prim and proper fellow teacher Lisi Schnabelstedt condemns the unorthodox pedagogical approach taken by her new „colleague,“ she nevertheless finds herself falling in love with Zeki and even helps him dig up something more valuable than cash, namely the remains of his own moral integrity.
