One Hell of a NightHe's never done anything crazy in his life. Tonight he's going to make up for it.
When duty calls, Klaus-Dieter answers! A walking, talking definition of dullness, sales representative Klaus-Dieter seems to have been born to a life of caution, obedience and boundless mediocrity. Though he has sworn never to go on a business trip over the weekend again, he makes "one last" exception when his boss gives him the keys to his Porsche and sends him into the boondocks on an "important" business deal.
No sooner does he arrive at his hotel than his old pal Hanno, a rough-hewn swaggerer, whisks Klaus-Dieter off to a bar. A couple of hours later, Hanno is dead drunk and Klaus-Dieter has been robbed of his money and cell phone, his boss's Porsche, his hotel key and his business documents. Plus the Russian mafia is after him. Oh, and he finds out that his wife is cheating on him – with his boss.
The night is long and the adventures come fast and furious as Klaus-Dieter proclaims war against his bland, passive personality. Teaming up with ex-prostitute Jana, he boldly looks danger in the eye and marches off to his destiny as the unlikely kingpin in a gangland showdown.
