Brief synopsis

Wir schreiben das Jahr 1987. Der Bankangestellte Ernst Kurschildgen hat 40 Jahre lang dafür gespart, den Lebensabend mit seiner Frau in einem Haus im sonnigen Südfrankreich am Meer zu verbringen. Doch an seinem letzten Arbeitstag in der Ruhr-Bank-Filiale in Gelsenkirchen hält das Schicksal einige unangenehme Überraschungen für Herrn Kurschildgen bereit, die ihn nicht nur seinen Traum kosten könnten...
