Utopia Ltd.

 
Anton Spielmann and his young friends Basti Muxfeldt and Jonas Hinnerkort live with their parents in detached homes in an attractive village just outside Hamburg, the town where Basti and Jonas attend school. The trio have formed a band called 1000 Robota. A couple of months after they started up, they are signed by a small Hamburg record label. But they soon encounter problems: Hard knocks, aggravating circumstances, as well as the gulf between their ordinary lives and their media image: all serve to put their enthusiasm to the test. Have their ideals now become a thing of the past?
