In San Francisco, during the gold rush of the mid-19th century, the young Levi Strauss (Vincent Redetzki), son of a Jewish peddler from Upper Franconia, persistently lays the foundations for becoming one of the greatest pioneers in American history. Despite the most adverse circumstances in a rapidly growing city where corruption and political despotism dominate everyday life, unscrupulous competitors and numerous personal setbacks, he paves the way for the global success of blue jeans, which will forever be associated with his name. But without a fateful encounter, this success story would never have been written: When Levi Strauss meets Jacob Davis (Anton von Lucke), a Jewish tailor from Riga.
