1991. Because of his long lasting unrequited love to SASKIA (19), the almost 18 year old PAUL THOMAS one day writes the song of his life. The song doesn‘t help him with his beloved, however it seems promising enough to send it out to the world’s leading record companies to eventually conquer Saskia’s heart via the detour of a rock star career. Paul Thomas is shocked when he discovers his song a few months later on the epoch-making album Nevermind by the band Nirvana, now going under the title Smells like Teen Spirit. In his firm belief that he has been ripped off, Paul Thomas starts an odyssey all across Germany to the shows of Nirvana‘s`91 tour, to demand his copyright from Kurt Cobain personally. Blinded by rage against Cobain and suffering from chronic puppy-love for Saskia, Paul Thomas doesn‘t notice that on his road-trip he encounters something maybe far more valuable than fame and fortune in the person of the quirky Hamburg girl TOLLE (22). At the last second it is no one less than Kurt Cobain himself who, not completely voluntarily, helps Paul to find happiness.
