Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

In this German action-thriller, Dorn (Marius Muller-Westernhagen) has a stroke of bad luck that gets him involved in the world of drug dealers, with no easy way out. While in his hotel room on Malta, Dorn is trying to figure out how to sell 50,000 copies of a porn magazine he has stashed there, when the police burst in and he just barely makes it out of the window and into the room below. That turns out to be a jump from the frying pan into the fire, because there is a dead man in the room below, and the next thing he knows, Dorn is being chased by the police for murder. Eventually, Dorn gets away from the clutches of the Maltese police force and ends up in Amsterdam with a mountain of cocaine to unload. But then he runs into Cora (Polly Eltes) who advises him to sell the cocaine to a Chinese drug lord. Dorn manages to pull off the sale for a hefty profit, but then events take a turn for the worse one more time, leaving him in another tight spot.
