Polar Bear, The (Eisbaer, Der)

Polar Bear, The

Four heroes, one story. Young Nico has an important contract: she is supposed to drive non-stop with a live bomb in her car boot to the destination, park the car there and run for her life...Leo has carried out a contract that had, unfortunately, long been cancelled and has now become the target of his clients...and Fabian and Reza want to have lots of fun without any money... Nico stops briefly to get some cigarettes... That comes at just the right time for Fabian and Reza: they nick Nico's car and race off into the night. Nico is helpless: she will not survive this night if the car with the bomb doesn't reach its destination on time. When Nico and Leo meet at the world's ugliest place, in the pub "Pauls Eck", neither of them knows that they have the same problem, nor that they are about to fall madly in love with one another. Nico is pursued by her accomplices because they think she is a traitor...Leo is being hunted by his clients...Fabian and Reza are lumbered with the police...and all the strands come together in front of "Pauls Eck"
