Romeo & Julia und die Neue Weltordnung

Synopsis
Fiction short. Accompanied by his family, the President of the United States is on a state visit in Berlin, old Europe. While he is meeting the German Chancellor, the President’s bored daughter, Julia, escapes from her security guards and strolls through the city. She encounters the rose-seller, Romeo, and falls in love with him. Romeo turns out to be a son of Osama bin Laden. Romeo and Julia pledge their love despite the hatred between their families. But while they plan their marriage, the public misinterprets the sudden disappearance of the President’s daughter, particularly the US-channel War News. Journalist Tybalt Tybaltovic believes Al Quaida to be responsible. The President threatens Germany with serious consequences, if the former ally continues supporting terrorism.
