Eschke, Kindl and Böck directed by Schwabenitzky – a different kind of road trip. Philipp suffers from phobias – so badly, he rarely leaves the house. On one of his infrequent outings, he unintentionally gets caught in Hertha’s clutches, who had planned to kill her unfaithful husband and cop Klaus. As the fearful victim experiences the worst hours of his life, the unlikely duo slips from one accidental robbery to the next, while being followed by both police and husband.
