While in this day and age Germany’s economic and social stability inspires awe and admiration throughout the world, Toilets is looking behind the scenes of success and therefor betakes to the place where everybody has to come clean and face the truth! With five delicate stories taking place on five different toilets, this pitch-black comedy relentlessly illuminates some dark corners of today’s german society, thereby revealing a colorful potpourri of human perfidy. Loni Nordahl is one of the German swim team’s great hopes – until an unannounced doping check threatens to ruin all of her medal hopes. Will Dr. Dietrich succeed in rescuing Loni’s career and the gold medal for Germany in the training center toilet? Martin Rolfes is haunted by a customer while spending his lunch break in the hardware store’s staff restroom. Mr. Jansen asks Martin if he can make a confession, little by little dragging the friendly garden department employee into a moral dilemma. Ms. Schohusen, whose spouse recently suffered a serious stroke, consults Mr. Tapken, a sanitary retail storeowner, about a toilet seat raiser. The unscrupulous businessman soon realizes how he can glean profit from the older couple’s suffering. Will Mr. Tapken modernize Schohusen’s bathroom – and for whose good? Manfred Kasunke is brutally attacked by two juveniles in a shabby subway station toilet – but the adolescents have chosen the wrong victim this time. The older gentleman turns out to be a French Foreign Legion veteran with a very special fetish. Patricia and Charlotte meet accidentally in a 5-star hotel restroom during a charity auction. Charlotte has recently fallen in love, as the nouveau riche Patricia finds out. And so Patricia freely chats about her one-night stand with Charlotte’s new boyfriend – although she just accepted the marriage proposal from her long-term partner. They finally get to the bottom of their relationship when Patricia asks Charlotte to be her maid of honor…
