Desperately in love, Tamara (Irina Potapenko), a Ukrainian prostitute, and Alex (Johannes Krisch), her boss's errand boy, must not reveal their secret relationship, as employees are not permitted to be romantically involved. In order to escape their red-light-district lives and fulfill their passions, Alex and Tamara devise a plan to rob a bank in a remote village.

But the robbery goes wrong, and a police officer (Andreas Lust) pursues their getaway car, resulting in tragedy and bloodshed. This calamity leads Alex to take refuge at his grandfather's desolate farm at the edge of the woods. What follows is a harrowing chain of events that radically alters the lives of everyone involved in the botched robbery.
