Docudrama about the titular gay magazine and men's club in 1940s and 1950s Zurich. At the time, homosexuality was illegal in neighbouring Germany but in Switzerland, gay men met behind closed doors and were covertly connected by a trilingual magazine full of entertaining editorial and drawings of the naked male form. The intrigue surrounding the magazine's publication provides a vibrant backdrop to the real-life romance of school teacher Ernst Ostertag and drag performer Robi Rapp.
