54 Hours

54 Hours

As life slows down on a hot summer's day in 1988, an armed bank robbery goes awry. While fleeing from the police, the two gangsters take an entire busload hostage. The ensuing manhunt, however, turns into a full-fledged disaster. The police make fools of themselves with their amateurish operations and, above all, are obstructed by the nation's media who swoop down on the events in their rat race for the juiciest pictures and live interviews with the kidnappers. What results is a debacle that will forever live in infamy as the most devastating 54 hours in modern German history.
