In 1972 NASA launches the Pioneer 10 satellite. On board a golden plaque showing an engraved message for extraterrestrial intelligence: The symbolic picture of our solar system and the image of a man and a woman.
For the inhabitants of smalltown Rosfeld, encounters of the third kind are completely out of the picture. A lot more pressing is the question why rival village Bisiningen has once again won the local football tournament. All attempts by Rosfeld's mayor Berger to change his insignificant village's fate have failed for years.
This small world is turned upside down, when suddenly a spaceship materializes over the village's rooftops.
Now mayor Berger sees his chance for eternal glory. He will make the first interstellar contact! And this time NOBODY will question Rosfeld's right to a place in the history books!
What Berger does not take into account while planning the reception is, that everything the alien life form knows about mankind fits on a small golden plaque...
