Atze Schröder is a kiosk owner in Essen-Kray. He has a Turkish employee, named Murat. Schröder lives with his blond girlfriend Sabine, called "Biene", in an apartment behind the kiosk. Among his best friends and most loyal customers are bodybuilder Harry and police officer Viktor. His landlord Richard Plattmann, also called "Opa Pläte", appears regularly in the series.
Common themes in the series are betting, gender-specific differences, and Atze Schröder's drive for profit. One of the hallmarks of the series, above all, is that almost all of the characters speak "Ruhrdeutsch".
