Ha lasciato l'università ad un passo dalla laurea in filosofia, fa l'autista di autobus, chiuso in una vita sonnacchiosa tra bar e vecchi amici. Le uniche emozioni le prova al tavolo da poker, dove perde regolarmente, tanto che è braccato da Titti (nome da canarino ma corpaccio da energumeno) a cui deve un bel pò di soldi. Il fato spinge Leila e Franz in mezzo ad una lotta spietata per un microchip che può rovinare un personaggio molto potente. A cercarlo ci sono agenti dei servizi segreti deviati e non. Leila, durante una delle sue piccole truffe, ruba senza accorgersene il microchip e si ritrova braccata dagli agenti. Sfugge alla morte per un soffio e si ritrova su un autobus notturno a chiedere aiuto all'autista, Franz, che crede di aiutare una ragazza che si nasconde da un fidanzato tradito e quando capisce in che pasticcio è finito è troppo tardi: ormai è stato individuato come complice ed è costretto a continuare la fuga insieme a Leila
