Mr. Wagner is a specialist. He has been a professional killer for over forty years. And for over forty years he has been practicing his trade with loving pride. An ambiguous but true work ethic guides Wagner's actions. An ethic which is not only genuine, but essential. When he meets Max, an unemployed twenty-five years old, Wagner believes he has found his successor. Taking him under his wing, Mr Wagner teaches Max all he knows, especially his sense of ethics.
But time have changed... And ethics are not what they used to be.
