EIN KÖNIG REGIERT
Karl is having a party for his company in a fancy restaurant. A suitable place to show off success to the world of business. Appearance is everything and casted actors are even better looking than real employees – the company is fake, the party a bluff. According to Karl, the world is in a legal state of war, in which only the fittest survive. Anything goes, It's just a matter of not getting caught. Karl is not mad, just madly determined to become a big boss.
