Brief synopsis

Mr Friedrich, an arrogant but capable lawyer, wakes from a strange dream. He is on his way to the "deal of his life" with a shady company and stakes everything on one card, his competence in financial business. With this deal he wants to free himself and his brother who works as a henchmen for the same company. The world around Mr Friedrich seems incomplete and absurd. 'Recipe for Success' plays with the true reality.
