Brown Hall 100, Washington University in St. Louis
Leila is a young woman who exploits her charm and beauty to seduce and then rob rich men; Franz is a bored and depressed bus driver, who has a gambling habit and a sea of debt. An absurd twist of fate makes them cross paths, and from then on they must deal with all the other unusual characters in this messy situation: Titti, a threatening bully who is after Franz to collect his gambling debt; Garofano and Diolaiti, two unlikely secret service agents who are in search of a very incriminating document; and also Matera, a trusted associate of a well-known, but out of favor, politician. Franz and Leila are different, very different, nevertheless, they may succeed at making a fortune together.
Based on the book of the same name by Gianpiero Rigosi.
