The Way You Die
1960. Night. A train on its way to the Iron Curtain. In it Sebastian (Andreas Thiele) – a guy like you and me. His actual mission was to escort an important painting to Prague. But after finding one of the guards murdered on the toilet, he is already in the middle of a bizarre 1960ies spy story. Who is the Scottish man (Erol Sander) in his perfectly tailored suit who seeks his life with a silenced gun? Is the attractive train hostess (Jil Funke) really what she claims to be? To save his life and the painting, Sebastian has to overcome his fears which may also include breaking free from his ghastly fiancée (Finja Martens).
