Logline

THE DAY, SEASON 1, EPISODE 1-2

One day, two stories, dozens of points of view. During the robbery of a small branch office of a bank, hostages are taken. Outside, mediators for the police and their colleagues from the task force are looking for a way to end the incident without bloodshed. Inside, the captives are looking for a way to survive, while the crooks are looking for lots of money — or at least a way to escape. In alternating episodes, the story is told of the perpetrators and of those who hunt them down.

Admission is free. Please be sure to reserve tickets ahead of time online or at the Box Office.


In cooperation with Seriencamp München.
