Comrades of Fortune

Forty-seven year old businessman, Stig Soerensen, is driving through Germany on his way home to Denmark when a young man jumps into his car and holds a gun to his head. All of a sudden Stig’s whole life is turned upside down. With his life in the hands of an impulsive teenager, during the two hour drive, Stig learns that he has more to lose than just his “normal life”. The young man decides to pick up an unsuspecting hitch hiker who soon points out the strange configuration of the two. As she tells them about the shootings that occurred at a school shortly before he was abducted, Stig realizes that his passenger is the gunman. Then the duel between life and death really begins.
