Rather by chance, they find the GDR's millions in an old mine shaft, which have been stored there to rot away. The three of them smuggle out rucksacks full of money. Together with their friends and neighbors, they develop an ingenious system to exchange the now worthless money for goods and cheat the onrushing Westerners and their capitalism. Because if you're a bit clever now, this summer could not only be a great adventure, but also the final turning point in their lives.
