A cache of Venezuelan gold bullion is hijacked en route to safe-keeping in a bank vault, deep in the Swiss countryside; the heist orchestrated by the elusive Mr Bonjour, an international man of mystery and villain.
Through a series of events, the gold ends up not in Bonjour’s hands, but in the grease separator of the newly opened Gourmet Burger Factory restaurant in downtown Geneva. The staff, a motley crew of young strays and disparate characters have a choice – keep the bullion safe for Bonjour’s imminent arrival, or take the loot and run, knowing the elusive villain may already be amongst them.
