Heroes and Other Cowards (Helden und andere Feiglinge)

Heroes and Other Cowards
Scene from "Heroes and Other Cowards"

Two worlds collide with one another. Carla is the daughter of a big crook and Alex is a great lover of many daughters. He looks for new romantic adventures while she is hiding from the police in a pub. He puts on a different story for each woman. For Carla, whose reserve he completely misreads, he comes up with the fairytale of the gangster on the run. She seizes the opportunity and offers herself as a cover without him realising that he is, in fact, her cover. But everything goes wrong when she then takes him on as an accomplice. Alex accidentally has the 250,000 Marks burnt which they had stolen from an arms dealer. Now they are saddled with the arms dealer, his customers and the police ... An action-packed comedy about kisses, dough and shooters.
