Klaus Stern's film is a portrait of the German technology entrepreneur Tan Siekmann, whose fate on the stockmarket exemplifies the burst of the "dotcom bubble" at the start of the 21st century. Faced with frustrated employees and legal disputes with former partners, the "reboot" of the company "Biodata" turns out to be less heroic than Siekmann would like it to be. It appears (also in looking back at the nineties) that the years of plenty are indeed over.
