1996. While sheep Dolly has been cloned into life, Grandma is dead, and the family is already tearing itself apart. There is nothing and nobody to find solace in for JOHANNA, a 32year-old intern at the local newspaper. On impulse she confronts an ex-guard of a concentration camp. But instead of finding release for her own discontent and anger, she has to face her own „Schlamassel“ (mess).
