Outwardly, they could be twins. But really only on the outside: The unemployed, disaffected toolmaker Erwin Strunz and the dynamic Prime Minister Uwe Achimsen, intoxicated with power. While the politician and his wife Heide are on vacation in Carinthia, Erwin and his wife Erika are on their way to vacation on the Baltic Sea. When they make a short stop in the state capital, Erika orders her husband to go to the hairdresser's—with serious consequences: everyone now thinks their Erwin is Prime Minister Achimsen. Before the unemployed knows it, he is already sitting in his spacious office and is supposed to make decisions. With the help of the slightly overwhelmed temporary secretary Gundula Sieveking, he soon has an overview of his tasks and concentrates on the essentials: saving jobs. After all, who better than him to know how frustrating unemployment is. His political friends and opponents are not only taken aback by his sudden commitment to the rescue of the ailing shipyard; His private life is also increasingly becoming the focus of public interest: The "Prime Minister" is quite unabashedly with a new wife who, of course, is none other than his Erika. The hype in the press doesn't bother Erwin, but when the news comes from Berlin that he is supposed to represent the sick Federal President during the visit of the English Queen, he begins to wonder how far he can go with the game.

Erwin Strunz would prefer to only take care of his beloved sweet potatoes. But a call from the employment office tears the unemployed toolmaker, who lives with his wife Erika in the arbor of his allotment garden, suddenly out of the idyll: Strunz lives on the support and therefore has to accept every "reasonable" job - including that of the country father. Because three weeks before the election, Prime Minister Uwe Achimsen had to go to the clinic with a suspected heart attack. His wife Heide and Minister Feddersen have the brilliant idea of reactivating Achimsen's secret doppelganger Strunz - after all, he already has a certain amount of experience in the government trade. Clothes make the man, and so Strunz in Achimsen's pinstripe suit is outwardly indistinguishable from a thoroughbred politician. But in his first address, the passionate allotment gardener amazed the parliamentary group with a new menu: Sweet potatoes are the future. As in his first mission, the unemployed Strunz uses the opportunity to intervene in politics, in the interests of the common people, whose interests he sees grossly neglected by desk criminals and lobbyists. When Strunz also exposed the aggressive political opponent Heinz Buber as a producer of speech bubbles in the TV speech duel and called off the construction of the unpopular airport runway, he was ahead in the polls. The real Prime Minister, who slips into Strunz's role to camouflage and has to endure the normal treatment of a statutory health insurance patient in the hospital, is not doing quite so well.

Cologne in the 70s. It could hardly be any better for Iwan Herstatt and his bank. Above all, a group of young foreign exchange traders ensures excellent balance sheets. It is no coincidence that they are called "golden boys". When Marie Breuer, who came from a humble background, got a job as a secretary in the bank thanks to the intercession of Irene Gerling—wife of Herstatt's financially strong childhood friend Hans Gerling—she entered a world that was new to her. At first Marie still had hopes that her boss Ferdinand von Broustin could have a serious romantic interest in her. That turns out to be a mistake, but she does not mourn long: She succumbs to the temptations of the golden boys—and especially the charm of her glamorous leader Mick Sommer. The only one who doesn't want to watch the goings-on with the golden boys is accountant Uwe Lennartz. Stunned, he observes how the speculations of the foreign exchange dealers are becoming more and more daring and simple employees of the bank employ ever larger sums. However, nobody wants to hear his warnings, not even bank director Herstatt. After all, Marie also participates in the speculation and not only takes her own money for it, but also all of her mother's savings. When the rate of the US dollar did not develop as the gold boys expected, hoped and bet because of the oil crisis, this had dramatic consequences. Herstatt's secretary Birgit Pütz lost 15 million marks in one fell swoop. Finally, accountant Lennartz informs the Federal Banking Supervisory Office. Its auditor gets down to work very quickly, but he does not penetrate the fraudulent system either. The processes in the respected private bank are becoming more and more absurd. Marie, however, keeps a cool head and sets everything in motion to save herself and her mother from financial ruin. The only question is: will it get ahead of the big crash?
