It just isn’t Till Reiner’s day – or life! He’s in his mid-30s now and has worked as a teller at Osthofen Mutual Bank for 15 long years. While Till dreams of what might have been his ambitious wife Miriam has become a successful fashion designer. The zing has gone from their marriage but help is at hand – in a very roundabout way - when ex-con Nappo robs Till’s bank and takes him hostage. Several crossed wires later Till wrongly believes Miriam no longer loves him. Bonding with Nappo via their shared enthusiasm for heavy-duty rock’n’roll, Till decides he has nothing to lose and might as well join Nappo and his girlfriend Nadine on a risky but exciting job in Amsterdam. Strap in for a rollicking good crime-comedy-road movie with this motley crew of miscreants.
