Director: Jens Wischnewski.
Phillipp Hofmann is on the surface a cold professor of physics. Emotions and humor are strangers to him. But at night, Phillipp is online under the nickname “Mr. Fatso”, to escape his loneliness. On the website “Your Channel”, he watches the anarchistic videos of “Ms.Bingo”, and falls for her. In real life she has the name Anne Krämer and is a student of Mr. Hoffmann. But in reflection to Phillipp, everybody knows Anne´s second identity and he doesn´t have the balls to talk to her. But when Anne uploads a video, in which she is announcing her suicide as a live broadcast to the internet, Phillipp is the only one who believes her. Everybody else thinks it is a joke, like all the other videos. But he doesn´t reach her with normal conversation . So he starts to make videos as “Mr. Fatso” by his own, and sends them to her. And Anne starts to open up, without knowing that “Mr. Fatso” is her own physics professor.
