On October 23rd 2007, Gaby Köster is at the peak of her career.
Less than 3 months later, on 8 January 2008, Germany's best-known and most popular comedian suffers a stroke. Coma, paralysis, operations, arduous rehab stays follow. We show a fate that, thanks to the incredible will and the certainly unique, often humorous view of the matter, becomes a moving, tear-jerking, but above all encouraging and also enlightening film.
At the end, exactly 5 years later, Gaby is back on stage. On 23 October 2012, she will receive the Honorary Award of the German Comedy Prize at the Coloneum.
