    “We are taking Pavel to Austria!” Volker and Helene have known each other forever. Now in their mid-thirties, they are still good friends, even if their ideas of a fulfilled life no longer completely harmonise. As modern, liberal Viennese, they have decided to help a mutual Russian friend – Helene’s ex – escape to Austria. Having become politically involved in his homeland, he got himself into trouble. However, what the two initially see as an adventure, soon threatens the entire basis of their friendship.
