This crime-romance story from Mark M. Rissi concerns a serious mid-life crisis. The "general" (Walo Luond) is actually an officer-clerk who leaves his deadly boring life behind one New Year's eve and takes off in his car for nowhere in particular. During his travels he meets Lisi, a smashing redhead (Silvia Silva) who needs a ride, and the two team up together. Once Lisi sees the clerk's military jacket in the car she dubs him the "general," and eventually, she tells him about the fortune in stolen Swiss francs she has in her bag. Now that his life has gotten a lot more interesting, the "general" is not about to leave her stranded, and soon the two are sharing a cabin in a remote wilderness, ready to face whatever adventure comes up next.
