The main Story
19 April 1999 | by thorn-10See all my reviews

Perfect continuation of "Aufforderung zum Tanz". Theo and Enno have made their big dream reality, they owned a brand new Truck. Payed with leant money. Early Morning, just before sunrise, Theo, a lovely loser, stopped at a patrol station. When returning to his truck, someone is stealing it. A chase thru Europe starts. A chase, where even Theo and Enno are chased by a guy from the credit "company".
