Two friends make a plan. Everything should go very quickly and nothing could go wrong. One of them, Jens Pohle (Ulrich Müller), was not entirely honest with his fiancé Marion (Johanna Schall). He doesn't work as an engineer for mechanical engineering, but as a locksmith. He cannot finance what he wants to offer her. Together with his friend Erwin (Detlef Nier), he wants to raid the chief accountant of their company on the day the wages are paid. But it doesn't go as planned and Erwin is seriously injured.
