Doctor Julia Feifer arrives at a scientific conference with an organ box containing the brain of the real Ulrike Meinhof, which is directing her to lead a new feminist revolution. To that end, she is searching for the ideal female body to transplant Ulrike’s brain into. Her arch-rival, Detlev Schlesingeran extreme right-wing ideologue, arrives at the conference with the ashes of Michael Kühnen, the former German neo-Nazi leader and infamous homosexual who died of AIDS in 1989. What will happen when they meet?
