Der alte John Carstens bereut es schon bald, seine alteingesessene Firma für Schiffsausrüstung an den Unternehmer Lafrenz verkauft zu haben. Lafrenz, der das Geschäft unter Carstens' seriösem Namen weiterführt, nutzt die Transaktionen nämlich, um Sprit zu schmuggeln. Carstens, der mit seiner erwachsenen Tochter Hanna und seinem kleinen Sohn Jochen in einer Dachwohnung im Firmengebäude wohnt, beobachtet das Treiben seines Nachfolgers mit großer Skepsis. Immer weiter setzt Lafrenz Carstens unter Druck, denn der hat noch einige Schulden bei dem hinterhältigen Schmuggler.

Elderly John Carstens soon regrets having sold his long-established firm dealing in shipping equipment to the contractor Lafrenz.  Lafrenz, who is carrying out the business still using Carstens’ good name, is using the operation to illegally smuggle fuel.  Carstens, who lives in an attic apartment on the company’s premises with his grown daughter Hanna and his small son Jochen, observes the going-ons of his successor with great skepticism.  Lafrenz, for his part, is constantly pressuring Carstens, for he has some debts he owes to the dishonest smuggler.
