One day they hear that Marjaleena's husband Worm will be released after twenty years in prison. He intends to start a new life with his cell-mate lover on the hidden recipes of a heist. Feeling betrayed, Marjaleena wants her share of the millions. A series of kidnappings, robberies, bodies, and bitter fates follows.
