In this uneven combination of mystery and comedy directed by Wolfgang Schleff, newly convicted killer Eva (Eva Bartok) is given some days of freedom before starting her sentence, due to pressing matters. Eva's problem is that she did not kill her husband, and with her short reprieve, she plans on finding out who did. She and her lawyer find evidence leading to a shady matrimonial agency that employs a certain Christinow Tomkin (Carlos Thompson) to lure wealthy women into their clutches. The challenge is to find the killer -- and proof -- before Eva is due to be jailed for the next fifteen years.
