Maria, the mother of television presenter Lisa Wartberg, has an accident with memory loss. All she can remember is that she has never been to New York. Without further ado, the elderly woman smuggles herself aboard a cruise ship.
For television presenter Lisa Wartberg her job is the most important thing in life. That changes, however, when her mother Maria loses her memory after an accident and suddenly knows only one thing: she has never been to New York. The feisty lady escapes from the hospital and smuggles herself as a stowaway on board a cruise ship to finally experience the city, which never sleeps, up close. Her daughter has no choice but to go on the search for her mother together with her make-up artist Fred. They do find her, but the ship leaves before Lisa and her mother get off board. A chaotic journey across the Atlantic begins, where Lisa not only gets to know passenger Axel and his son, but also her mother makes an exciting acquaintance.
At several points in the movie, the position of the sun and moon are inconsistent with the ship's west-bound course from Hambourg to New York, with the sunrise appearing in front of the ship, for example. See more »

Based on th the German stage musical and the songs from Udo Jürgen. A wonderfully feel good movie. That is what are u see, a cast who lives the play a lovely production. This movie has the heart of "let me entertain you" as goal and that is exactly what he is doing. No more no less. Wonderful.
