Men & Chicken

Gabriel and Elias are brothers, but very different from one another. Gabriel is a worn down university professor and Elias is masturbating fulltime, he is a man, whose only concern is women and trivial knowledge. During a lecture Gabriel receives a phone call telling him that their father has died. Things take a turn for the worse, when the brothers receive a videotape recorded by their now late father, telling them that he was not their biological father after all. Gabriel and Elias discover that their biological father lives on the island Ork. They set out to the island and here they meet their three half brothers, Franz, Josef and Gregor. Three brothers, who are hiding from the authorities and are not afraid to use physical violence with no regard for who they beat up. The brothers' first meeting doesn't go as expected.
