An international gang of criminals pulls off a heist of $2,000,000 in foreign currency. The head of the group is known as "Major," and he boards a plane from Frankfort to meet with his cohorts in Vienna. When the plane crashes at the Vienna Airport, the mortally injured Major confesses his sins to a priest before he dies. The priest is then kidnapped by the rest of the gang, who torture him in an effort to find out where the money is hidden. To further complicate matters, one of the gang is an undercover insurance agent who is trying to recover the stolen loot. The priest, a specialist in hearing the confessions of the dying, is constantly being contacted by police who wish to partake of his services in this fast-moving crime drama.
