Two young people, Eva and Richie, meet in front of a station and become caught up in a chain of events. Richie's friend and taxi driver colleague Rolf had to die because he found out that Franz Riedhammer, the boss of a big taxi company, was involved in some shady dealings. Rolf had stored all of the entanglements on a diskette which a couple of gangsters would now like to find. This duo think that Richie has the diskette, but he doesn't know anything about it.
