The comedy tells the true story of a young waiter, who wants to become a journalist shortly after the turnaround. Although he has neither high school diploma nor contacts, but promises boldly the story in which all the newspapers and magazines desperately bite his teeth: the last interview with the overthrown GDR head of state Erich Honecker! To gain his trust, Johann Rummel turns out to be an avid young communist and begins an adventure that finally leads him to distant Chile. A journey that is not without danger. Max Bretschneider and Martin Brambach play the lead roles in "Welcome to the Honeckers".
