When his brother falls into a coma, Mike, who has been missing for years (both played by Michael Ostrowski) settles in with his sister-in-law and her family. More than just chaos moves in along with Mike, who has come to help—mainly himself. Der Onkel/The Hawk is a wild genre play in which all morals are driven against the wall with the Ford Escort. A star-studded cast—Michael Ostrowski, Anke Engelke, Gerhard Polt, Simon Schwarz, and Hilde Dalik, among others—comes to a showdown in gag staccato. Lucky Strike for Lucky Mike. Or in other words: The eagle has landed!
