Fritzi´s exciting 24 hours begin when she tries to rob her husband’s
dealer.

In this award-winning musical drama-comedy from Germany Fritzi (Julia Zimth) wants to catch her husband’s drug dealer. She needs money for a private rehab: for the in-patient detoxification of her addicted husband. The drug dealer, a small fish who wants to get out of drug trafficking himself, needs money to support his sick father in a nursing home. Together they hatch a plan to screw the “big boss” played by Leif Evers and get hold of some money. For Fritzi, the most exciting 24 hours of her life begin, during which she witnesses a murder, falls in love, gains great insights and at the end has to decide, with a bag full of cash, whether she really wants to save her husband? And this after everyone has sung their way through the big question, whether love is enough to save someone?
