Alice works in a call center in the outskirts of Zurich. She spends her days conversing with strangers, selling them deals on telecom and insurance packages. After work she meanders seamlessly through the city's parks and various security checkpoints; she also meets elderly women to collect envelopes filled with cash. In fact, Alice has been calling these lonely women posing as a granddaughter in urgent need of money, a scam that has quickly brought her a fortune. Two police detectives are alerted to the fraudulent scheme, and set off in search of the perpetrator in an anonymous city.
