When a talking, communist Kangaroo rings his neighbour's doorbell asking for eggs to make pancakes, a struggling musician has no clue that his life is about to turn upside down. This hilarious adaptation of German author and singer-songwriter Marc-Uwe Kling’s best-selling book The Kangaroo Chronicles features the author voicing a cheeky animated Kangaroo.

Marc-Uwe (Dimitrij Schaad) is a poor musician living in a run-down flat in Berlin-Kreuzberg. One day, the doorbell rings and he stands face to face with a talking Kangaroo. Being a staunch communist, the Kangaroo doesn't believe in private ownership and, without further ado, decides to move in with Marc-Uwe. From then on, the Kangaroo takes the reigns in Marc-Uwe’s flat and constantly challenges him with philosophical questions.

Despite their differences, Marc-Uwe and the Kangaroo ultimately unite in a fight against their common enemy: an insufferable right-wing populist politician and property investor Jörg Dwigs, who wants to build the headquarters for his far-right populist party right next to Marc-Uwe's apartment. So together with their neighbours, Marc-Uwe and the Kangaroo choose to resist and battle against gentrification.
