Alex (Johannes Krisch) is a gofer in Vienna’s red-light district. His girlfriend Tamara (Irina Potapenko) is a prostitute in one of the local brothels. Together they plot an escape to the countryside, attempting to rob a provincial bank to finance their journey. When their plans go awry and the burglary becomes violent Tamara is shot and killed leaving Alex alone and out for revenge.
