Brief synopsis

Summer 1988: a 22 year-old bank employee discovers a security gap at his employer’s bank - a prestigious, time-honoured bank. He embezzles millions and clears off with the money to Australia. His life as a millionaire can now begin. But the love of his life is not prepared to follow him with their son.

“I stole the money for you! For us! What shall I do now?”

In a mix of feature film, documentary and animated film, the film tells the true and unbelievable story of an unusual bank employee based on original interviews.
