Juan Belmonte, named after a famous Spanish bullfighter, is a former South American Marxist guerrilla now working in a Hamburg strip joint. An old man in a wheelchair approaches him with an offer he cant refuse. During the Second World War two German police officers stole precious medieval coins from the German treasury and hid them somewhere in Chile. Fifty years later they are trying to retrieve their spoils. Belmonte must recover them and fast.

But Belmonte is not the only one on the track of the coins. Frank Galinsky, ex-operative for Stasi, the defunct East German intelligence agency, is out of work with no prospects. He, too, is approached, this time by his former chief who briefs him on the coins and orders him to retrieve the treasure.

The chase is on
