Petra is at home in the tourist metropolises of the world. She lives from seducing wealthy men and robbing them with the help of sleeping pills.
With part of the crooked money she finances her younger sister Franziska's studies and later her own translation agency. Franziska believes that her big sister earns the money as a successful remote manager.
Petra, who is on the heels of the police, moves to her little sister in Cologne, where she wants to start a new, happier life. But she soon discovers that Franziska has something to hide too. Franziska is deeply in debt.
“A crime tragedy played intensively in the leading roles about the sale of dreams and desires. It conjures up a dark, fatalistic film noir world, which in its predictable hopelessness is reminiscent of François Truffaut's Cornell-Woolrich adaptations ( The Secret of the False Bride , The Bride Wore Black ).
