Life is not easy for the millionaire Maximilian. Having a schedule busy with motocross, base-jumping and tanning, little time remains for himself. So, naturally, when it comes to the recycling company he inherited, he couldn’t care less.
One day Maximilian finds himself face to face with his spitting image – his twin brother Lukas, who earns his living as a garbage man and dreams of being his own boss one day.
The two were anonymously left in front of a children's home and grew up separately.
After the initial shock subsides, the two hatch a wild plan – to swap roles for four weeks.
While Maximilian sees life as a garbage man as a new and fun challenge, Lukas is thrilled by the idea of heading a huge company.
The switch enables Maximilian to meet and immediately fall for Elena, the owner of a pizzeria, but she rejects his passionate advances.
Quickly broke, faced with a tough job and saddened by his failed romance with Elena, Maximilian is already fed up with his new life.
Lukas, on the other hand, is living out his dream. Residing in a posh villa, he’s not only excited by the chance to prove he can run a company; he’s also thrilled when the attractive Managing Director Kristin appears interested in him. Maximilian wants his life back? Not quite yet…
When Lukas finds out that the company is on the brink of bankruptcy, he is ready to abandon ship, but this time it is Maximilian that insists on keeping the deal. He has finally won Elena’s heart, but not for long… She soon finds out Maximilian’s real identity and leaves him.
Meanwhile, Lukas has discovered that Kristin is behind the company’s impending bankruptcy and together, the twins come up with a plan to stop her. All that is left now to save is Maximilian’s love for Elena…
