The Perp

Der Täter

Jakob is living a double life - during the day, a decent family man and tour bus driver; at night, a gentleman bandit with Robin Hood tendencies. Ably supported by his accomplice Fanny, no art theft is too difficult for this smart and charming quick change artist. However he barely escapes from his last escapade - a heart attack puts an end to the robbery and very nearly lands him in jail. After being persuaded to spend some time in hospital, Jakob accidently stumbles upon a corruption racket involving the Chief of Police and resting in bed is suddenly off the agenda. After being hunted by the police for years, Jakob sees his chance to get his own back on the Police Chief and do something good at the same time. But will his weak heart be up to it? And can he continue to hide his secret double life from his daughter for much longer? But Jakob wouldn't be Jakob if he didn`t have a few aces up his sleeve.
