In order to apply for German citizenship, Israeli-born radio playwright Noam Brusilovsky needs confirmation from his employer – the ÖRR – that his integration in Germany has progressed.

In return, Brusilovsky is to stage Goethe’s “Faust” as a radio play. However, he has never read it – which the prominent cast must not notice!

So the ‘director against his will’ has the “Faust” told to him by pedestrians and explained to him by various experts and thinks about which previous directorial ideas he could steal for his “Faust”.
