Inhalt

The Polar Bear
Four heroes, one story. Young Nico has an important contract: she is supposed to drive non-stop with a live bomb in her car boot to the destination, park the car there and run for her life...
Leo has carried out a contract that had, unfortunately, long been
cancelled and has now become the target of his clients... and Fabian and
Reza want to have lots of fun without any money... Nico stops briefly
to get some cigarettes... That comes at just the right time for Fabian
and Reza: they nick Nico′s car and race off into the night. Nico is
helpless: she will not survive this night if the car with the bomb
doesn′t reach its destination on time. When Nico and Leo meet at the
world′s ugliest place, in the pub "Pauls Eck", neither of them knows
that they have the same problem, nor that they are about to fall madly
in love with one another. Nico is pursued by her accomplices because
they think she is a traitor... Leo is being hunted by his
clients... Fabian and Reza are lumbered with the police... and all the
strands come together in front of "Pauls Eck".
