'Unter Freunden stirbt man nicht'
"What are five days compared to eternity?" muses Joachim (Heiner Lauterbach) and, together with Ella (Iris Berben), Friedrich (Michael Wittenborn), and Annette (Adele Neuhauser), hatches a daring plan: they must keep the sudden death of their friend Hermann (Walter Sittler) a secret for five days. The deceased is, after all, the hottest contender for the Nobel Prize in Economics, and the announcement of the winner is imminent. The only problem: dead people don't receive Nobel Prizes. The winner must be alive for the announcement. So, a few days can make all the difference, whether the friends lay to rest a soon-forgotten scientist or a Nobel laureate whose name will be forever etched into the history books. The four agree – in honor of Hermann and his memory. First step: cool down the bedroom and close the windows to prevent any flies from getting in... But what starts as a final great service to a friend gradually spirals out of control, putting their friendship to the ultimate test.
