Con artist Maik Schäfer switches his fake conductor's suit for a real soutane while trying to escape custody and ends up in the catholic parish of Läuterberg. Standing in for Vicar Sanman, Maik participates in the parish members' fates and fortunes, and deals with their problems in his own unconventional way. At the same time, he has to help out his brother who is stuck in Berlin with a busted drug deal and a 50,000 Euro debt with a local gangster boss. To pay him back Maik plans to get his hands on the parish's precious but well-kept monstrance. On top of that, choir teacher and police officer Eva Hellwarth start to show interest in the new vicar - though in a different way than he had hoped.
