Summary
Uwe is a kitchen salesperson in Munich who likes his sleep and who loves his kids and has a very Western outlook on life. His brother Gustav is a Feng Shui consultant who structures his life around Zen meditation. When Uwe's wife leaves with the kids, Gustav takes him along on a trip to Japan, to the Monzen monastery near Tokyo. But not before getting separated and lost, and sleeping in a tent on a tennis court. Once at the monastery, they experience rising at 4:30 A.M., taking cold baths, cleaning the floor, and the elaborate unwrapping of eating utensils. Despite personal torment and sibling rivalry, the two brothers gradually lose "control" of their lives and learn to live in the present
