Provincial Germany in the mid-19 60s.
Two men who are prepared to stop at nothing.
One of them is Hartholz, the manager of a brewery. He is absolutely unscrupulous when it comes to driving independent brewers out of business so he can take over their property. His right-hand man is Keller, who performs the dirty work for Hartholz with his gang of henchmen. The two men work very well together, and business is flourishing.
But then one day Keller falls in love with the wife of a brewery owner who has been condemned to meet a nasty end by Hartholz. Keller feels uneasy about going through with the plan, but Hartholz insists, remarking: "It’s just business, after all".
And suddenly the two friends become deadly enemies...
