Brief synopsis

ENGLISCH

The old tobacco store owner, Walter Bukowski (Ronald Nitschke), and his beloved wife Maggie are victims of a brutal robbery…so it seems.
With his back to the wall and the knowledge of only having caught a glimpse of the villain in a fuzzy mirror, Walter identifies his tormentor in a face off with five suspects. Lt. Carter (Dietmar Wunder) however doesn’t give any credence to his words on account of Walter’s obvious afflictions of old age, nor does his partner Det. Todd (Michael Deffert). With the wisdom and patience of an aged man Walter faces the prejudice and sets a trap for the perpetrator.


DEUTSCH

Der in die Jahre gekommene Tabakladenbesitzer Walter Bukowski (Ronald Nitschke) und seine Frau Maggie werden Opfer eines brutalen Raubüberfalls...so scheint es.
Mit dem Rücken zur Wand und dem Wissen den Täter nur für den Bruchteil einer Sekunde in einem Spiegel gesehen zu haben, identifiziert Walter seinen Peiniger bei einer Gegenüberstellung mit fünf Tatverdächtigen. Lt. Carter (Dietmar Wunder) jedoch schenkt Walter auf Grund seines Alters und seiner offensichtlichen Gebrechen keinen Glauben, genauso wenig wie sein Partner Det. Todd (Michael Deffert). Mit der Geduld und der Weisheit eines alten Mannes stellt Walter sich den Vorurteilen...und dem Täter ein Falle.
