Zürich in the mid 1950s. The shy, young teacher Ernst Ostertag becomes a member of the gay organization Der Kreis (The Circle) whose publication unites the fragile yet vibrant post World War II gay community in Switzerland. There he gets to know cabaret singer and female impersonator Röbi Rapp and immediately falls head over heels in love with him. Ernst finds himself torn between his bourgeois existence and acceptance of his homosexuality. For Röbi, it is about his first serious romantic relationship, a relationship that proves to last a lifetime.
