Big Mäck: Gangsters and Gold


Donald Stellwag is an outsider: bullied, he eventually drops out of school and becomes a junkie. In the early 90s, just as his life is beginning to turn around, a TV show ends up connecting him to a bank robbery. The description: Very tall, very fat. Just like Stellwag. A dubious expert witness convinces the judges of his guilt due to an allegedly characteristic earlobe, and he is convicted. Despite his credible alibi, Stellwag spends eight years in prison. Not even two weeks after his release, the real culprit is caught. Stellwag is acquitted and becomes a media star in no time. But then, when a gold transporter is hijacked on the A81 motorway, seizing gold worth 1.8 million Euro, everything changes. The leader of the perpetrators, the notorious gangster-rapper Xatar, squeals to the police. The gold robbers and their victim all have one thing in common. They all know Donald Stellwag… Is he committing the crimes he‘s already served time for? Is this how he becomes the avenger of his own fate?
