Storyline

It's Berlin, 1946, and we are in the Russian sector. The war has been lost, and work, and food, are hard to come by. Three very different men have different ways of trying to survive, but they come together to plan a daring raid on the safe of the headquarters of German Railways. They pull the job off successfully, but then a jealous woman finds part of the money and betrays them. Written by Hazel Freeman
