Diller (Nicholas Ofczarek) and Kessel (Fritz Karl), two hard-boiled red-light district cops, learn that their old "pal" Mohammed is planning to rob a bank with his mates. And it happens to be Kessel's own branch. After some problems with drugs, Kessel's wife has left him, but he's intending to win Claire (Jessica Schwarz) and the kids back and has thus been clean for months. Despite Kessel's warning to the branch manager, the gang carry out their plan and also take a hostage: Kessel's sick daughter Ruby, who lives with her mother and is only by chance in the bank that day. Friendship and treachery in an underworld tale full of authentic characters.
