Kurt Tucholsky is a pugnacious publisher and ironic author and, thanks to his risqué chanson lyrics, a celebrated star of many a revue. In a seemingly endless summer, after writing inflammatory articles about the Nazis, he travels to the castle of Gripsholm together with his girlfriend Lydia. Two of their friends, the seductive vaudeville singer Billie and the passionate flyboy Karlchen, join the lovers in Sweden for a while to spend their vacation - thus causing further erotic turbulences.
