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?

The question then becomes how far the Kims can take this scam in their quest to become their version of the Parks.

Conquering ninety percent of the known world by the age of twenty-five, Alexander the Great (Colin Farrell) led his armies through twenty-two thousand miles of sieges and conquests in just eight years. Coming out of tiny Macedonia, Alexander led his armies against the mighty Persian Empire, drove west to Egypt, and finally made his way east to India. This movie concentrated on those eight years of battles, as well as his relationship with his boyhood friend and battle mate, Hephaistion (Jared Leto). Alexander died young, of illness, at the age of thirty-two. Alexander's conquests paved the way for the spread of Greek culture (facilitating the spread of Christianity centuries later), and removed many of the obstacles that might have prevented the expansion of the Roman Empire. In other words, the world we know today might never have been if not for Alexander's bloody, yet unifying, conquest.
