In this comedy about the triumph of the exploited against the powerful few, an affable and honest Bavarian truck driver is hoodwinked by a shifty salesman into buying seven different insurance policies. When the driver slowly realizes that the cost of the policies comes to about half of his salary - an impossible situation - he innocently goes to the company headquarters in Munich to right the "mistake" - only to find that a secretary is sending him on one wild goose chase after another. In his meanderings, he comes across a hidden system of cameras that have been spying on the workers on the sixth floor - where the secretary is located. So he lets her know what is going on, and in return, she tells him that the salesman he wants will be at a company party that evening - along with everyone else in the company as well. The resolution of the driver's problems takes place during the festivities that night, among a very eccentric crowd of people.
