Sammy, a likeable slacker and amateur crook, must satisfy the last wishes of Disko, the old godfather of Ottakring, Vienna’s 16th district, after his death: collecting protection money, financing criminal activities, solving problems—and also keeping track of everything and doing what godfathers have always done.
But, Sammy’s not a real gangster. Valerie, who studies business at an elite German university, wants to prove that banks can make a profit and still do business in a sustainable way. She travels to Ottakring, planning to transform her theories into practical knowledge at a credit broker. The local loan shark, Ms. Jahn, is however interested in higher things and wants more. Much more. And so Sammy and Valerie cross paths while trying to find their bearings in this confusing and relatively hopeless situation. Together with friends and neighbors, they soon form an alliance against the immoral and insidious methods of lenders and other criminals.
Most importantly, they find a way to set up a flourishing business system in the little district, one from which everyone profits. If only emotions didn’t get involved to make things more complicated. David vs. Goliath in Vienna’s 16th district!
