A more playful, witty and critical remake of Rainer Werner Fassbinder's love story Die bitteren Tränen der Petra von Kant, while retaining the depth - about a film director who is being tormented by the succes and sexual adventures of his muse after their short-lived romance ends.

When succesful film director Peter von Kant meets the attractive and young Amir, he is instantly in love. As the boy comes from a humble background, Peter offers him to share his appartment and to help him to enter the film industry. Initially, Peter's love brings Amir lots of successes and them both happiness, but the young talent soon outgrows the haunting love of his 'mentor'. As soon as he has made his international breakthrough, he disappears without a trace and leaves Peter distraught and alone with his demons.
