    • Synopsis
    • The Häberles from Oberrieslingen and the Rossbauers from Unterrieslingen will be facing each other again. With a new cast, a new storyline, an obscure secret, lots of black humour, and the typical Swabian obstinacy.
      A new priest is appointed to the parish: a North German ,, who neither understands the local dialect nor the particular sense of humour of his new parish-lambs. „Father Köschter“ fails to realise that the dying Rossbauer senior is trying to tell ihm how and why his family tried to poison him. Likewise, he doesn’t understand why the village beauty Maria Häberle refuses to reveal the name of her newborn son’s father. Instead, he has to read out a Swabian testament full of spitefullness, catches pot-smoking teenagers in his confessional box, and speeds through the vineyards on an old moped with his black cassock billowing behind him.
