A grumpy and hard-done-by gardener escapes his old life and explores Germany via the sky. What hi finds is regained curiosity, peace and a life woth living for.

Georg Kempter is a gardener in a small Bavarian town, working day-in, dayout in his nursery, which is facing bankruptcy. He doesn‘t like to talk much. He never has. His marriage has long lost all its magic and on top of that, he has trouble to connect with his daughter. Only when he is flying in his own rickety biplane, Schorsch feels truly free.
When the owner of the local golf course tries to rip him off his pay because the shade of green of the grass Schorsch has planted there is not “as green as it gets”, George snaps. Just when his airplane is about to be impounded, he grabs the control stick and flies away in an attempt to save his plane and himself.
He embarks onto a journey into the unknown, to places he has never seen before, full of odd and special encounters – and with every take-off and every landing, this tough man's heart slowly warms up to what you might call an idea of happiness...
