A man who loses a very personal part of his body to cancer, decides that he wants it back in this weird black comedy. The high-flyer Martin Schwarz, student in the USA, suddenly collapses during a stay in Germany with his parents. Diagnosis: testicular cancer. When the doctors suggest complete amputation, Martin decides to fight for his manhood. He won't leave the field to the "egg thieves" so easily. Martin quickly learns that the bad situation can only be endured with pitch-black humour. In a cloak-and-dagger action, he and his fellow sufferers invade the pathology of the hospital to search for Martin's lost egg.
