Takeover
in production

Story

Danny and Ludwig, both 18, come from completely different worlds: Ludwig leads a life of luxury, while the music-obsessed Danny has to watch every penny. But when they meet for the first time at Europa-Park, they realise that they have one thing in common: what they look like. They are each other’s mirror image and are quickly mistaken for each other. They seize the moment and dive headfirst into completely new ways of life: Ludwig enjoys the bonds of Danny’s family and Danny gets to use the time afforded by a life of leisure to practice for his performance at a song contest. But the cracks soon start to appear, and the “Takeover” threatens to go off the rails – mainly because of Danny’s inquisitive foster sister Lilly. Events lead to a spectacular showdown at the big song contest …
