Description: Kurt is a pugnacious publisher, ironic author and, thanks to his risqué chanson lyrics, a celebrated star of many a revue. In a seemingly endless summer he travels to the castle of Gripsholm together with his girlfriend Lydia. Two of their friends, the seductive vaudeville singer Billie and the passionate flyboy Karlchen join the lovers in Sweden for a while to spend their vacation causing erotic havoc. Even during his vacation, Kurt is pursued by legal action initiated by the army of the German Reich. In one of his articles, Kurt had made the statement that "all soldiers are murderers"- a statement that is still highly controversial. Kurt sees the brownshirts looming on the horizon and decides not to return to Germany. It is the summer of 1932, and soon nothing will ever be the same again in Europe.
