Keiner der Bewerber kann es aber dem ziemlich exzentrischen Trio rechtmachen, bis ein junger Mann namens Hugo das höchstpeinliche Verhör cool übersteht. Hugo bezeichnet sich als Schriftsteller, der auf der Suche nach sich selbst ist. Doch schon bald liegt der coole Hugo eiskalt auf dem Bett - gestorben an einer Überdosis Drogen. Das eigentliche Übel befindet sich aber unter dem Bett: ein Koffer randvoll mit Geld. Das Trio beschließt, das Geld zu behalten und die Leiche zu entsorgen, und zwar so, daß sie weder an Füßen, Händen oder an den Zähnen identifiziert werden kann. Kaum geschehen, treten neue Probleme auf, unter anderem in Gestalt von zwei Polizisten und zwei Killern. Weitere Leichen müssen verschwinden, doch das Grab ist nicht tief genug ... Und dann - langsam aber sicher - machen sich erst abgrundtiefes Mißtrauen und schließlich nackter Wahnsinn unter den vermeintlichen Freunden breit
