Brief synopsis

Topper gibt nicht auf! erzählt die Geschichte von Axel, der Regie studiert und die männliche Hauptrolle seines aktuellen Films mit seinem Idol Til Topper besetzt. Topper entpuppt sich allerdings beim Dreh als arroganter Exzentriker, der droht alles hinzuschmeißen. Doch dann kommt Marleen. Sie spielt die weibliche Hauptrolle, weckt seinen Ehrgeiz und – ist Axels Freundin.
