Brief synopsis

A squad of small-time criminals take advantage of the beautiful blonde’s Judy’s (Alena Bacher) drugaddiction to come by a valuable diamondnecklace. With the help of her alleged bodyguard, Judy classily causes confusion in a jewellery store. The diamondnecklace – not for the last time – changes hands and so the scenario takes off.

First everything seems to be working out fine but with the doctor’s (Aleksandra Simic) help Mrs. Windermere manages to oust the criminals. They do so in very charming feminine, but nonetheless very ruthless and irrevocable manner.

As soon as the audience feels a sense of security the two villians take back the action and arrange a brutally romantic finale. As you may imagine it is not your typical happy ending but more a twisted resolving of events that brings the jeweller Mrs. Windermere (Barbara von Münchhausen) and her employee Mr. Philips (Thomas Goersch) out to be victorious at last.
