A candidate in a game show is hunted by three men. He will get a Million DMark, if he survives for a week; the hunters will get the money, if they can kill the candidate. The audience of the show is watching the transmissions of twenty camera teams filming the hunt. The showmaster appeals to the TV-viewers to help either the candidate or the hunters, whomever they want.

Did You Know?
After the second broadcast in the 1970s, public broadcaster WDR, which produced the film, was sued by producer Joseph Cates
who owned the film rights. The problem was that WDR purchased the rights to make the film from German publishing company Goldmann, who released the book the film was based on. However, Goldmann did not own the film rights, so the licence WDR bought was void. This was confirmed by the Higher Regional Court of Frankfurt in 1977. Since then the film was not shown publicly anywhere. Only in 2002 WDR was finally able to acquire the proper rights from Studio Canal, which in the meantime had become the rights owner. See more
