Tokio Hotel – Behind the World

At the age of nine, German twins Bill and Tom Kaulitz decite to become famous. Aged 12, they form a band together with Gustav Schäfer and Georg Listing that would go on to conquer the world as Tokio Hotel. They are admired, ridiculed, hated and adorned. And a gigantic success: they go platinum in 60 countries concerts are sold out and Bill becomes a style icon. Rich and famous in their early 20s, the twins fly to Los Angeles by private jet, leaving behind thousands of devoted fans and a life behind protective walls. They want their freedom back without knowing what the future holds. The film delves into the lives of the band, accompanying Bill and Tom through Californian deserts and visiting Gustav and Georg in their hometown, Magdeburg. They talk about the price of success, the inseparability of twins, about love, sexuality, home and music. The band comes together to produce their new album and to prepare for their world tour. With steely determination and a lifetime of experience already, the band follows their childhood dream: the pop fairy tale that is Tokio Hotel continues.
