50 year old Georg Komann and his colleagues surprisingly get laid-off by their company, without even getting a decent compensation. Knowing that none will rehire over-fifty-year-olds, they need a good plan to avert their personal and financial ruin. Komann risks everything by asking his boss for a conversation that could change his life in any direction - a personal call of 15 minutes.
