Plot

Francis and his sister Monique have a shady method for earning money; Monique lures men into her bedroom and shortly after her brother ends up storming in angrily claiming that she is underage. The men then have to pay them off to keep their reputation.

They receive an offer from the bandit Frank Kramer to join in on a kidnapping operation in Spain. Francis and Monique are promised a huge sum which means that they could retire from their petty con games. The target is the daughter of the American billionaire Van Willie.

They manage to kidnap her and confine her in with a retired painter along with his wife and son in Andalusia. But not everything goes according to plan.
