Economy Minister Erhard had promised wealth for everyone, and Petticoat and Minirock is about this economic miracle era. It is the story of people who meet for the first time in the Fifties: on the MS Binger Loch, a river cruise ship travelling between Koblenz and Bingen. On board is the Krautkrämer family, marked by the abundance of food and consumption, a businessman who ascribes his success to always having been in the right party, his secretary, longing for luxury and a wedding ring, a musical hit composer and a showgirl trying to build a joint career, and finally a bitter barkeeper, a late returnee who found himself outside in front of the door and a young, rebellious steward. All of them have dreams, but when they meet again on a cruise on a dream ship in the Mediterranean in the early Sixties it becomes clear that dreams are but shadows, and in life and love some things turn out unexpectedly.
