Production: Z-wie-Zimmer/ver.di Jugend
Main Cast: Fabian Baecker, Maximilian Gehrlinger
A black-humoured sitcom to demonstrate how much sense the demands of the ver.di Youth group make and that they are rather too modest than too demanding: The spoiled rich kid Maximilian-Benjamin has to live together in a shared flat with the grounded ver.di-activist Robin due to some unfortunate circumstances. Maxi-Ben never stops to show off and to try and put Robin down. However, most of the time he only manages to make a fool of himself and Robin is usually triumphing over him with his nicer character features.

In a shared apartment of young acting students and their surroundings, various plots of romances start to evolve.

But soon more essential problems than their various love affairs are coming up and their friendships are getting tested.
