Till Reiners (Axel Stein), mid-30s, has been a teller at Osthofen Mutual Bank for almost 15 years, leading a settled, regular lie. His marriage to ambitious purse designer Miriam (Anna Maria Mühe) is happy, but in danger of getting into a rut after all those years of harmony. The die-hard rock lover;s life is not exactly exciting: except for when his 4-year old son has a crying fit because he lost his favorite snuggle bunny. All of a sudden, Till is torn from his daily routine when a bank robber storms his branch and takes Till hostage after his getaway car breaks down. When the kidnapper takes his mask off, Till recognizes Nappo (Moritz Bleibtreu), a former con who just got out of jail and wanted a loan from Till to buy a 67′ Mustang the other day, but Till turned him down. As the police set up road blocks and Miriam awaits her husband’s call, Nappo decides to abandon Till in the trunk of the car and disappear with his loot. But it doesn’t work out that way. Till and Nappo have to flee.
