Gustav Fröhlich, Ruth Hellberg and Grethe Weiser, Bernd Hofmann
$9.99
After having lived in the tropics for five years, Peter Asfeld returns to Amsterdam and wants to marry his childhood sweetheart Julia Vermehren.  The problem is his future father-in-law read in a horoscope that Peter will one day commit a robbery and he demands that he do this before the wedding takes place  (okaaaay).  Peter now can't escape from thinking about this and even in his dreams, he's committing all kinds of crimes.  Inspired by all of these phantasies, the next day he robs Julia, his future wife.
 
Nachdem er fünf Jahre in den Tropen gelebt hat, kommt Peter Asfeld nach Amsterdam zurück und will seine Jugendfreundin Julia Vermehren heiraten. Nun hat sein zukünftiger Schwiegervater aber im Horoskop gelesen, dass Peter einmal einen Diebstahl begehen werde und verlangt, dass er das noch vor der Hochzeit tut. Der Gedanke lässt Peter nun nicht mehr los, und selbst im Traum begeht er die allerlei Straftaten. Beflügelt von so viel Phantasie raubt er am nächsten Tag Julia, seine Zukünftige.
