Description Louise is at a street parade for the Kaiser when her underpants fall off. She is pretty sure no-one noticed but within hours the rumours are all over Dusseldorf. Meanwhile her bullet-headed husband fears for his precious nine to five position as a tiny cog in the loud clanky machine of pre-war German bureaucracy. Forced to sub-divide his modest flat he is pleasantly surprised by the number of keen, male, would-be boarders lining up to apply. The cruelly neglected Louise is suddenly a star. Her buried desires are awakened. And then things rapidly start to get out of control.
