The godless, thuggish medium Ludwig Bruckmeier (Dieter Fischer) has repeatedly maneuvered himself into prison, despite his best otherworldly contacts. With the help of a generous donation, his energetic parole officer Christine Wurzelbacher (Ursula Maria Burkhart) - complete with strict parole conditions and electronic ankle bracelet - now places him in the rectory of her parish with Pastor Gabriel Gottwald (Moritz Katzmair), of all people.
The man of God wants to bring the reluctant Ludwig back on track with the help of his kind but somewhat stiff pastoral assistant Elisabeth (Julia Urban). Ludwig, however, turns the house of God, including the rectory and the old people's home, upside down. He does not even stop at the confessional. There he has a lucrative encounter with Josef Wurzelbacher (Sepp Daser), the troubled husband of his probation officer.
Soon Ludwig also gets a visit from his buddy Rudi Drexel (Winfried Hübner), also recently released, who appeals to Ludwig's financial woes, but also - parole or no parole - to his magical abilities. So he manages to persuade Ludwig to grant a heartfelt wish to the wealthy widow Martha Heiß (Heide Ackermann) - an ardent admirer of the Bavarian fairy-tale king.
Elisabeth would have to go far beyond her moral virtues to save the oracular Ludwig from another stay in prison.
