This thrilling, playful experiment from Berlin in the late 1990s focuses on twenty minutes that are a matter of life or death. A gangster errand-boy, Manni, loses 100,000 DM in the metro. Lola must get the money within twenty minutes to save her lover from the underworld's revenge. Without any clear plan, she runs to the streets and her desperate race against time repeats in three versions, always with a different ending.
