    • Synopsis
    • When a Neanderthal Man mysteriously rematerializes in modern day Germany he seeks sanctuary and a safe harbour in the garden shed of Barbara van Schmerling, a 23-year-old student of environmental planning. She takes him under her wing in order to save 'the last living testimony of former humanity and naturalness' from the corrupting influences of western civilization. But when her altruistic feelings turn to romantic ones, she is faced with compromising her ethics, or losing the only person- or primitive- she has ever truly loved.
      A power crazed media mogul and a P.T. Barnum wannabe threaten to corrupt the guileless caveman's soul by entering him in a worldwide TV talent show called "The Ultimate World Star”. Now the Neanderthal must choose between Barbara, the only person that loves him for who he really is, or the siren call of fame and fortune.
      The Neanderthalman is played by the American actor Jon Chardiet (“Beatstreet”, “Money Talk”). Barbara van Schmerling is portrayed by the German shooting star “Sarah Muehlhause (“Anna und die Liebe”), who received international acclaim in the Spanish box office hit “Fuga de cerebros ” and it also features the American actor Rick Zieff (“Mississippi Burning”, “Terminator3” and recently “Law and Order: Los Angeles”) and the British actors Martin Jarvis (“Titanic”, guest appearances in every British television show and “Funny Or Die” with Danny de Vito) and Rosalind Ayres (“Titanic”,”Gods and Monsters”, “Beautiful People”)as well as “German All Star Cast” including Milton Welsh (“Ghostwriter” and “Conan”).
