Brief synopsis

THE CLONE - if you can make an omlett... you can make a clone!
Peter is in love with his roommate Beatrice. But when she tells him she will leave Berlin for an internship at Amnesty International in Australia, he doesn't know what to do. Then he meets Albert Einstein in a dream and Einstein gives him the solution: Clone her!
With the help of his assistant, Kowalsky, Peter tries to clone Beatrice out of her DNA in the bathtub. In order to develop the higher faculties of the clone, Peter takes the developing brain on a journey through Berlin. Amazingly the brain quickly absorbs intelligence. But will the cloning process be a success?
