Eine kleine Spende

A Film by Constantin Jahns

Synopsis

As business man Lehmann misses the last bus home, the evening couldn’t get any worse. He thinks. At the same bus stop a mysterious homeless person is waiting and asks Lehmann for a little change. Lehmann rebuffs the homeless person, but will bitterly regret it. As he moves on by foot he notices a dark figure behind him which is coming closer. The homeless person. What seems to be a harmless joke for Lehmann evolves into an ominous cat-and-mouse game. And Lehmann is the mouse.
