Essentially a wild, slapstick chase comedy, this offering by director Peter F. Bringmann stars Marius Mueller-Westerhagen as Theo, a jinxed con-artist. Theo and his partner Enno (Guido Gagliardi) just went together to buy a truck, and while Theo is answering the call of nature at a rest stop, a thief makes off with the prized truck (and its load of illegal goods). So Theo steals a car and takes off after the thief while Enno hooks up with the young owner of the car, a Swiss college student (Claudia Demarmels) and the two join Theo in his pursuit of the thief. That riotous pursuit bumps them all over Europe and back in a series of nonsensical mishaps.
