A sophisticated trio has teamed up in the “Waldidyll” restaurant: Hilla Simke (Karin Ugwoski), her husband Benno (Jürgen Zartmann) and the waiter Justus (Bernd Stegemann). They defraud their guests and the state. In this way, the three doubled their income. You can afford a luxury apartment, drive a new car and have an expensive hobby. So far everything went smoothly, but now the new waitress Ilona (Renate Reinecke) brings unrest to her house when she gets on with Benno Simke and Hilla catches the two inflagrantie. Hilla is determined to get a divorce, but is put under pressure by her husband, who has falsified delivery notes over the years, thereby securing the “additional income” of the two. So Hilla withdraws her application for divorce, especially since Benno promises that both could start all over again. But when she learns that Benno has promised the waitress Ilona something similar, she has to act.
