Musicologist Mr. Szabo has dedicated himself to collecting archival material from the history of Austrian pop music. Due to a unfortunate coincidence, an original stage costume of a Viennese beat band from the 60s landed in a charity clothing collection. To retreive the rare piece, Szabo doesn’t shy away from a veritable break-in. His young, aspiring colleague Mr. Fitzthum helps him – not entirely voluntarily. Because unlike Szabo he has a lot to lose: his job, his career and above all, his freedom.
