Synopsis

Drama. In 1980, in a small town in West Germany, Tobias, a twelve-year-old Beatles fanatic, is having a boring summer holiday. One day his attention is drawn to a mysterious man driving a white VW Beetle, and Tobias is convinced he has seen the car before. When he looks at the covers of his Beatles albums he knows for sure that the car is featured on the cover of the Beatles' `Abbey Road' album. Tobias then discovers that there was a rumour circulating in 1966 that Paul McCartney died in mysterious circumstances and was replaced by a double by the Beatles' manager, Brian Epstein. Tobias is sure he is close to Paul's killer and resolves to solve the 'case'.
