A desolate suburb in Germany provides the setting for the story of two men, who in the emptiness of their own lives decide to give value to human life by destroying it. Meanwhile, they waste their time by drinking beer and talking about how they could make money. When one of them loses his job, there is nothing to stop their restlessness. All their frustrations become tangible and it is precisely at that moment when they stumble across a helpless homeless man. The film by Christian Klandt is based on a real event.
