In mid-1950s Zürich a young shy teacher becomes a member of the gay organisation Der Kreis, where he gets to know the transvestite star Röbi – and immediately falls in love with him. Röbi and Ernst live through the high point and the eventual decline of the organization, which in the whole of Europe is seen as the pioneer of gay emancipation. Ernst finds himself torn between his bourgeois existence and his commitment to the movement, while for Röbi it is about his first serious love relationship. A relationship which will last a lifetime.
