Gabriel and Elias are brothers, but very different. Gabriel is a worn down university professor and Elias is only concerned with women and trivia.

During a lecture Gabriel receives a phone call telling him that their father has died. Things take a turn for the worse, when the brothers receive a videotape recorded by their now late father, telling them that he was not their biological father.

Gabriel and Elias discover that their biological father lives on the island Ork. There they meet their three half brothers, Franz, Josef and Gregor, who are hiding from the authorities and not afraid to use physical violence. Their first meeting doesn’t go as planned.
