After the fall of the Wall, many East Germans are drawn to the West by the quickest route. One of them is Clara, who quickly gets rid of her Leipzig husband and sets off in her Trabi to meet her lover Artur. But no sooner are the two together than they fall into the hands of a West German butcher's family, who catch as many GDR citizens as possible and turn them into sausage for their hotel. A bloody fight for survival begins.
