Austrian small time crook Johnny Pichler meets a dubious ‘businessman’ at the Slovak border to hand over a wad of cash. Things do not go as planned and suddenly Johnny is on the run with call girl Shirley, the money and the gangster’s Cadillac. After several fruitless attempts to sell the car, Shirley dumps Johnny, who has hopelessly fallen in love with her. Based on an address on a photo, Johnny decides to search for her in Lviv in the Ukraine. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0328901/)
