In the battle for Western civilization, young men with “backgrounds” have inspired fear and terror in German society. That they have “backgrounds” usually suggests that they are immigrants, Muslims or educationally disadvantaged, often with Turkish or Arab roots. These men force their women to wear headscarves and then – instead of going to work or to school – they refuse to integrate and continue to produce more girls that they force to wear headscarves. That just about summarizes common assumptions in the current »integration debate«. There’s still one last chancefor salvation – the good old German school system, i.e. education, education, education! One day a teacher is presented with a unique opportunity: She’s trying to teach her unruly students about Friedrich Schiller’s view of humanity when a pistol falls into her hands, a real one! She hesitates for a moment, then she takes her students hostage. She forces them, at gunpoint, to get up on stage and act out Schiller’s The Robbers. This hostage situation begins an enigmatic dance of genres from thriller to comedy to melodrama that gleefully deconstructs all allegedly clear-cut concepts of identity.
